This works for the testing distribution, not sure about Sarge:

Using the netinstall ISO (not the businesscard), do a normal installation,
leaving the network unconfigured.  This will be a base install only, but
the package pppoeconf is on that cd.  Once you have the base install in,
simply apt-get install pppoeconf, and use that to get your connection
going.  From there, edit your /etc/apt/sources.list, and install whatever
else you need from there.
