This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I recently
installed Debian "etch" on a PCG-R505TS, which is similar, and I
couldn't get any of the bootable devices to work.
What I eventually did was pulled the hard drive out of it, and
installed a basic system onto it through a USB-to-IDE adapter
off another computer using debootstrap.
So, I don't know how to solve your problem, but there's a
workaround for you.
