Ok, sorry, maybe i not rephase my word correctly, 

Is there any plan for Proxmox VE based on 32 bit Debian? 

Currently, on the others 6 server that i couldn't migrate to VPE server is because it was 32bit. I'm running CentOS 5 32bit with OpenVZ container on it with about 3-5 CentOS 4 32bit container running LAMP on it.

If there are Proxmox VE based on 32 bit Debian, i could replace the HN ( currently 32 bit CentOS 5 ) with PVE ( Webbase Virtualizations Management is too cool to resist :) ).

Hmm, maybe i still don't really understand what is running under the hood when i setting the ORIGIN_SAMPLE="pve.auto". Can you explain what it really did to the containner when i'm setting this?

I wish it all automatically set but if i'm wrong, i would like to have the ability to manually tune the setting like :

Memory / Swap Management :

CPU Core and QoS management :

( maybe with number of failcount like in UBC? ).

Most of the time, all these setting is always bug me and need me to pay special attention to it ( Read : Zimbra Server on OpenVZ containner :)).
