This doesn't really answer my question; maybe you misunderstood (didn't
understand my babbling).  I just want to know how long it will be
(date/release/revision) until Debian stable will work with the SATA in
my system.  As you can see above, the testing-amd64-netinst image worked
for me.  I am guessing that, since this image is "Etch", that it will be
after Etch is released that "Debian stable" will work for me (because it
will be Etch, then).  If that is true, is there any answer to when Etch
will be released?  Is it "any time now", as I have seen mentioned here
or, like I said before, 2-3 years after the previous release (after June


Debian Etch is scheduled for release on or about the first week of December, 2006, according to the most recent schedule I've seen. The kernel and toolchain freeze is supposed to go into effect at the end of July; the base freeze in August, and the general freeze in mid-October.

It's anyone's guess whether it will all play out this way, but the developers are committed to doing everything possible to make it happen, after the disastrous delay releasing Sarge. See Ian Murdock's blog post of May 08:
