Make sure the X100p channel is numbered consistantly between 
/etc/zapata.conf and /etc/asterisk/zaptel.conf, is being signalled with 
fxs signalling, and has a context ("default", perhaps) defined in 
extensions.conf where include => demo is included, assuming you didn't 
change your extensions.conf much from the sample.  Channels are numbered 
based on what module loaded first.  In your case, loading wcfxo then 
wcfxs would lead to channel 1 = x100p card, and channels 2-5 = tdm400p.

>I have of course read the Asterisk handbook but it is too the theorical to me. Could someone tell me where i can find exact informations on how to set up and how to use IVR server with Asterisk.
Keep reading and absorb the .conf files.  It will gel at some point.
