  I just checked, that looks like the same card I have:

00:0d.0: 3Com PCI 3c905B Cyclone 100baseTx at 0x1000. Vers LK1.1.16

  So, it looks like unfortunately there must be something wrong with those 
CD's. You'll probably end up saving time by going and downloading this image:


   You can burn that to a CD (it's 30 megs in size), and then boot off of it 
to download everything else you need.

   Still, once you get that up, hopefully you could grab some packages off 
your CD set or something. You can install any deb package with the command 
"dpkg -i [packagename]" . For example, if you are on a slow connection, you 
could get KDE packages off of those CD's.

  BTW, the CD above will use Woody rather than potato, but I had great 
success with it with the same network card apparently you have. Since the 
others are suggesting getting potato and then moving up to Woody, this should 
simply be a more direct route so long as it works.
