Your system has a SATA CD-ROM drive, according to:

I don't know why your Debian Etch network install CD does not detect
your CD-ROM drive.  Is it an older version?

If it is, I recommend downloading a Debian Etch full install CD and
trying that.  Don't worry about the network card for now, I'm sure you
can get it working.
