Embedded Linux on PPC403GA??

I have a (small) number of NCD Explora Pro X-terminals with PPC403GA
chips in them that are currently surplus to requirement. They have
an early implementation of a PCMCIA slot, as well as all the usual
X-terminal features including booting from the network using BOOTP and
TFTP. For this reason, they would make great little router boxes etc.
or wireless Access Points with an appropriate PCMCIA wireless card
(my real application).

As the PPC403GA doesn't have an MMU of any sort, I was wondering if
anyone on this list had been able to get one to boot Linux using one
of the MMU-less embedded Linux implementations?

Any help, tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
