Thank you very much for those info.
Eventually, after other tries, I got this ("better") error:
mkinitrd: unkown DM device xx:xx (these where actual minor major numbers).
it seems it can't find something to cope with /dev/mapper/sil...
So I changed the beginning of the script to:
echo $1 $2
and noticed it would create the file /boot/initrd.img....new
I used the gentoo initrd (with dmraid) and copied where appropriate, also
copied the modified mkinitrd on a floppy and copied it back on /usr/sbin "on
the fly" just after kernel image installation.....
Installation of the base system then went on ok and concluded (initrd renamed
initrd.img.....new to initrd.img-2... and complained about grub, but this was
OK for the installer).
In the end I have a working system, BUT I can't login with a normal user
account and X server... "/dev/null" permission denied, then chmod
+666 /dev/null and still other errors...
I'll now try as you suggested: chroot into debian partiton and installation
