I believe there is a bug in the aic79xx.o module for kernel-image-2.6.8-1.  I 
assumed you tried to use linux26 during the sarge install.  You can use the 
2.4 series kernel during the install.  At the boot: just hit the enter key or 
manually type linux and it will install a 2.4.27 kernel.  

2.6.9 kernel was just uploaded into unstable.  You can try installing that 
kernel once your initial install with a 2.4 kernel is done.
