Personally when the sarge installer has problems I prefer to boot
off a recent ubuntu or knoppix live cd/dvd and debootstrap install
debian sarge then use a vanilla kernel or one from backports.org.

There are other ways but I find this the quickest for the first
time (I use images after that).

Do a dpkg -l and see if you can find the correct package there?

Mine is called apache2-common.
