Installing Debian


I would like to install etch on a new PC whit netinstall (daily-build). I have the following system:

Intel 3.2 GHz
one 160 GB SATA HD
one 200 GB SATA HD
Onboard NIC
USB mouse
USB keyboard (no interface for PS/2 keyboard)

I tried booting the etch netinstall CD. All went fine until i had to choose the language. I can't choose a language, because the keyboard is not reacting. For example the numlock led is not burning.

Now i made a reboot and started at the bootpromt with install24. The keyboard is now reacting normal. I can also choose a language. But i have a problem whit setting up my onboard network card with DHCP and in the expert mode i have also problems identificatig the SATA HD with the 2.4 kernel.

By the way, i downloaded the newest knoppix version with the 2.6 Kernel. The HW identification works here fine. (USB-keyboard OK, Networkinterface with DHCP OK, SATA HD OK).

So i think there should be a way installing Debian (etch) with the 2.6 Kernel.

Is there at bootpromt an option for activating a usb keyboard?

Or should i download the sarge netinstll CDs (because etch is a testing version) and sarge would work with the 2.6 kernel?

Or which installation way would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.
