Ok, I tried with some options
(http://people.debian.org/~terpstra/message/20051202.093632.1589458f.en.html ) that people indicate me in #debian-boot.

Still nothing.

I managed to install strace in the busybox and ran debian-installer

Don't really know what's happening...

To make myself clear, I don't really *need* to use gtk-installer on this
box, it's only my test box, and I wanted to try g-i on this (old)
hardware, only to test if it worked.
