Debian preseed options skipped

I'm trying a preseed Debain "Lenny" 5.0.1 installation and all works fine but some options are skipped. This options are:

1 ) cdrom-checker doesn't start with "d-i cdrom-checker/start boolean true"
2 ) OEM installation doesn't work with "d-i oem-config/enable boolean true"
3 ) Xorg presonalized configuration are skippe with :
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/autodetect_video_card boolean true"
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/autodetect_monitor boolean false"
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/monitor/selection-method select"
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/monitor/mode-list select 640x480 @ 60 Hz"
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/display/modes multiselect 640x480"
"xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/autodetect_mouse boolean true"

Please can you help me with any?
I checked the preseed file with "debconf-set-selections -v -c preseed.cfg" and it's parsed.

I attach the complete preseed file.
Sorry for my english and thanks a lot in advance
