Where to get a Sarge ISO

With Lenny inches from release and Etch time-tested and stable, it's an odd 
thing to want, but I need to install Sarge.

I just took over management of a production server running Sarge, and I need 
to upgrade it to Etch, at least, in order to get it back on a supported 
platform.  Unfortunately, I have no idea if the upgrade will break the 
application it's running, so I want to install Sarge in a VM, copy the 
application files over, verify the app works correctly and then upgrade to 
Etch so I can not only test the app on Etch, but also the upgrade process as 
well (I'm sure the upgrade works in general, I'm wondering if it'll break 
this app).

Unfortunately, the only Sarge ISO I have is an old netinst ISO, and it no 
longer appears to work.  It seems to be trying to download a kernel and is 
unable to find one on the repository servers.

A full ISO would work fine, I'm sure, but I don't have one and I can't find 
one (or even MD5 sums) on any of the official mirrors.  I can find a couple 
around the net but they're from random sites and I don't like installing 
stuff from sites I have no reason to trust.  Ideally, I'd like to find an 
official place to download an ISO.  Failing that, I'd like to find an 
official list of Sarge MD5 sums, so I can check the random stuff I'm 
downloading.  Another alternative would be to find some way to make my 
netinst ISO work.

Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Oh, I need the i386 arch.
