25P Editing Problem,Please Help

I am to shoot a Short film With DVX100a, PAL, 25P(scene F6). Can Anyone suggest a proper Post Workflow? With Final cut pro 5/Premiere Pro2.0

I Set up the FCP5 using the standard PAL setup with No Field(progressive). After I captured the tape and view it with Quicktime, the Image was a real crab on Quicktime player.( but it was great at the capture Preview screen, after i press capture(now) the image turns bad).

Premiere pro 2.0 was doing no good neither. I also setup the standard PAL with no Field in the DESKTOP mode. and could not find a proper compressor for the review in the Desktop Mode.

Please Help! I search the whole Internet and find not a single piece of infomation about 25P editing. the FCP Pro website and premiere support website did not even mention about 25P.

Is 25P anygood at all? coz when I preview the captured file on my Mac with Quicktime player, the 25P footage couldn't even match my Panasonic NV-GS400(a consumer camera). It was grainy and the color and resolution seem so low.
Is anything I've done wrong during the capture and setup or it just the DVX100a's Nature?!

I'm gonna bump this post as I'm looking for an answer to this too. Just gotmy DVX100b 2 days ago and want to make sure I have the right settings for FCP editing of 25p footage.

Here's what I'm thinking.

Set the capture to normal 50i as that's what's recorded on the tape.
Set the timeline to 25p (No field order)
Edit as normal

When I want to output for DVD, I simply render as normal using Compressor as a standard. It will not care that the progressive frames are interlaced and just put them into an interlaced stream.

Can someone confirm this?
