Short Debian installation:

  • install etch as you please
  • install openvz kernel ( linux-image-openvz-686 ) if you want, it'll save you some errors when installing openvz kernel dependent packages. alternatively you can do dpkg -a --configure later.
  • use the apt repository deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian etch pve
  • install packages: proxmox-ve, libhtml-embperl-perl, apache2-mpm-prefork (with their dependencies, I suggest to use aptitude and a repo like file:/cdrom/proxmox/ from the CD image)
    • embperl will be fscked if you do not use prefork apache:

  • keep -pve kernel if you do not need some advanced kernel features, or use an OpenVZ/Debian one if you do (like software RAID)
  • reboot with your newly installed system, and follow the installation instructions.
