Sure, check http://www.solinno.co.uk/7043-140/, that's Leigh Browns site.
There's a detailed step-by-step guide which will take you through the whole
process. You can even choose what distro you want to install, but you may
have to update your firmware first (I had to do it as well, but it was
OK). BTW: great job Leigh!

There are 2.4.x kernels on that site which are working very well, I
installed Debian Woody on top of it ;-)
