I wasn't able to install sarge, it didn't recognize the wired Ethernet card, 
so no chance for net install (Windoz identify it as intel PRO/100 VE), and I 
got some problem with the SATA disk too.

The problems I reported was with Etch, and as you correctly assess I got 
problems with video card and wireless. 
Any hints are welcomed.
