Install from the net iso, and then update your sources.list to point to
sarge rather than testing - because if you have testing, then your
machine will get updated to the new testing, as soon as sarge is
released. OTOH if you use sarge in sources.list you will be running
unstable for the next little while, and then you will become stable,

What do you mean Michele? In what way doesn't it exist? Aren't the new
installer test ISOs sarge based?

But bear in mind the word "unstable". If you keep an unstable box
updated, you WILL sometimes break things.
