This is what I usually do. And if even the ethernet card isn't
recognised I temporarily install an old ethernet card, get
Wheezy/$VERSION (I have been doing this for some time!) installed (I
use the net-install CD) and then sort out the drivers.
When I can, I use an installer with non-free firmware. But it can be
tricky to find one! I believe there is a Wheezy one at the moment,
but don't know where on the Debian site it is hiding.
I'm a great believer in free software, but quite fancy keeping my nose
attached to my face. ;-)
