I'm using hercules 4.0, this version supports qeth layer2, I have debian wheezy running with qeth and I'm currently testing layer3 qeth.
What version of debian-390 are you using, the current stable that I have installed, only contains a minimal s390-tools package and I have yet to find a full debian s390-tools package.
