I'm using Mac failovers on a virtual machine where i'm trying to
install Debian Squeze.
The problem is when I try to specify my IP adress and such, I have a
gateway unreachable error.

In fact I would like tu use the following configuration:
Ip address of the virtual machine is named IPVM, the gateway is IPGT
So the machine would have the following parameters:
IP address: IPVM
Broadcast address: IPVM
Gateway: IPGT

A /etc/network/interfaces would look like this:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address  IPVM
broadcast  IPVM
post-up route add  IPGT dev eth0
post-up route add default gw  IPGT
post-down route del  IPGT dev eth0
post-down route del default gw  IPGT

But I can't configure my network like this using the installer.
