Virtual Box Fails to Install Debian

I recently attempted to install Debian 5 using the latest net install iso image using Virtual Box (the commercial/non-open source version). The installs kept failing. I finally tracked it down to not having enough RAM available. 256MB was not enough but bumping the virtual machine setting to 512MB did the trick.
