I am forced to agree entire with you... Now I install Debian Lenny add
dmraid=true on the kernel command line, before start installation procedure
and the installation goes ok... I see if the system boot and go on...
Than, I will install proxmox over apt repository... I hope this work...

Thanks a lot
