Lenny netinstall, need CD Official i386 NETINSTA Binary-1

I'm new to Debian, with little experience on Ubuntu.

I'm trying to install Debian Leny on a small Intel board (on 8GB USB stick)D945GSEJT.

I got netinstall file debian-507-i386-netinst.iso, burned it on a CD and boot from it.

I selected options "desktop" and "standard system" if I recall correctly.

Now installer, step : Configuring xserver-xorg, ask me to insert the disc labelled :
"Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.7 _Lenny_ - Official i386 netinst binary-1 20101128-01:05"
in the CDROM and press enter.

I found that strange that a network install is asking for a CD.
How can I fix that ? Where can I find the ISO file of this CD ?

There are a few base files that need to come off the CD. Basically, it appears that it boots fine, but then during the setup it doesn't recognize the CD drive anymore. I had this problem when I first installed Etch and had to boot it with linux libata.atapi_enabled=1. I wouldn't think that would be needed nowadays. What type of CD drive are you using?

Hi all,
The link you provided is exactly the file I burned on the CD.

I'm using external USB 2.0 DVD, Super Write Master.
I think the problem is the USB DVD itself. I cycled USB DVD power and Debian continue
the installation, but now failed to install grub.

At grub rescue prompt, how can I install grub on USB stick ?
