we deploy Centos and (K)Ubuntu sistems without problems. Are you try to upload a Ubuntu 10.xx image?
If you need deploy a ubuntu 11.xx image, you need make some changes:
*create or modify the menu.lst file
*install and configure the grub-legacy
See the next documentation (sorry only in spanish, but you can use Google traductor 🙂 )
