Netinstall with Wireless Adapters

Is it possible to use Debian's netinstall with a usb Wireless adapter? Like a Lynksys adapter or Dlink?

Off the top of my head i have a DWA 160 and a DWA 142.

Yes, it is possible, by entering the wifi as primary connection during the install. The installer will ask you the question to use the wifi card if the card is found. A lot of cards are supported. You could try it by inserting the install disc or usb stick and choosing install.
