A week ago or so I was following the installation guide step by step
and I manage to get Quickbook working on Windows Vista 64-bit
without any problems.
On Debian Linux I got it working too by installing a bunch
of packages, compiling quickbook and updating my
$HOME/user-config.jam with this:

# ------------------------
# BoostBook configuration.
# ------------------------
using xsltproc ;

using boostbook
    : /usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/nwalsh
    : /usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/dtd/4.2

using fop
    : /usr/bin/fop
    : /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk

using doxygen ;

# ------------------------
# Quickbook configuration.
# ------------------------
using quickbook
    : /home/mloskot/bin/quickbook
