    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
