I am also using the D945GSEJT boardwith the R8169 and had a heck of a
time getting things going. The problem is indeed in the kernel, so I
installed unstable to get a version of the kernel which would support
it. Your desire to avoid unstable was probably a good one, as unstable
seems to be more unstable than I have experienced in the past.

However I did _not_ have any problems with the installation, I used a
USB stick, followed the excellent debian docs on how to use the stick
as the boot device and everything went smoothly.

Well, sort of smoothly, it turns out I had a bad ethernet switch, but
that's a subject for a different post.
