Getting a cheap CD-R drive would be terribly useful.

Please figure out a way to solve the problems. Thank you!

With a Sempron 2800+ (little brother of A64), I easily installed

I did a test with a sarge netinst cd back when sarge was still testing, and it did detect sata disks. I doubt it won´t detect today.
By the way: semprons are 32bit even in a 64bit board (my case).
