Read the installation manual (the big document, not the short summary).
For Etch, the instructions were very clear and yes it worked fine.  The
installer seems able to search everywhere necessary.

Note, just in case its not clear, you can't just copy the .iso to the
pen and try to boot it.  You have to use the hd-media kernel and initrd,
with the boot loader.  There should be an image file that you just zcat
to the stick to create, then copy the .iso file to that new filesystem.

Good luck.
