Hello everybody! Thanks for the suggestions, just to put a happy end on
this thread I had sucessfully installed Proxmox 4.1 with Debian Jessie on
the Dell PowerEdge R730 with NetXtreme QLogic/Brodcom 57xx board NIC.

The sweet steps are:

0. Download firmware from [0];
1. Install Debian (read [1] before doing this);
1.1 During install it will ask for the firmware extract the files from the
.deb and put them on a flash drive;
1.2 Remember to add non-free to apt sources.list to receive updates;
2.0 Install Proxmox4_1 following this[1];
3.0 Happy virtualizing!
