I just pressed 'enter' at the boot prompt and selected the keyboard.
Then I made a complete partition based on 5 logical volumes in one
volume group made of three disks. I left as normal partition a small
/boot partition with ext2 fs (all other volumes where formatted
using xfs).

d-i downloaded all base packages and selected kernel 2.6.3-1-i386
but then it stopped for thid problem:

Setting up kernel-image-2.6.3-1-i386 (2.6.3-2) ...
/usr/bin/mkinitrd: constituent device /dev/rootvg/rootlv does not exists
Failed to create initrd image.
