The target machine has the latest GNU/ Linux Debian Lenny stable
installed to its hard drive -as well as Fedora- since its a multi-boot
machine. Hence, the default Debian Live build image is 2.6.32.x, then,
is probably causing the issue. Nevertheless, what does not make sense
is that the hard copy Debian Live CD-media boots appropriately in the
Debian Live development host machine but not into other (machine ;)

Anyway thanks for your insight, Daniel. Probably I will specify any
other kernel except the "buggy" 2.6.32.x default for Debian Live
build.
