You'll need to make sure you're using at least a 2.2.16 kernel. The
kernels prior to this did not handle the dual SCSI bus of the Q900 and
Q950 properly. There is a command line option that will turn off the
external bus so the boot will complete, but since you have an external
disk you want to use it's not a good solution for you. The 2.2.19
kernel is the one you should look for.
