Comments/Problems:

Neither of two Seagate Barracuda 750GB ES ST3750640NS SATA hard disks
were detected.  Tried to manually load the sata drivers and a bunch of
random drivers to no avail.

Also; when installing 'download installer components' there was no
'back' which wasn't a very good thing since the install was going very
slow(as sometimes is the case from the ucalgary mirror)

(lspci output from working ubuntu/server/8.10 install on same computer.)

Sounds like the kernel does not like your system. One obvious thing to try 
is the etch-and-a-half installer, which uses and installs a more recent 
kernel than the original Etch release. See [1] for further info.

Alternatively, you could try the Lenny Release Candidate RC1 images[2]
if you're OK to install the "not yet stable" version of Debian (namely
Lenny) on this machine.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze Beta2) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.
