How much memory does this Qube have?
I also had a lot of trouble installing Debian on an of the shelf Qube 2. I found this procedure:

You really should consider setting up a serial connection with the box (even if you decide to use the SSH installer), so you know what is going on.
P.S. you can find my story and findings on my Qube here: http://kennywest.blogspot.com/2010/02/story-of-cobalt-qube.html

Subject: "unit boot failed" by installing Debian on Qube2
I´m trying to install Debian an Qube2.
I successfully installed an DHCP- and NFS-Server on my Ubuntu and
start the net booting on the Qube2. The Qube2 gets The IP from the
DHCP and asked if I want to use terminal or SSH. I don't have an
serial connector on my notebook so that I have to choose SSH. After
the display says "Starting the installer (SSH)" I got an "Unit Boot Failed". I tried
also Serial with the same result.
Does anybody have an idea?
