That's an ARM 920T - (samsung S3C2410 CPU). 64MRAM, 16MB NOR, SD/MMC

Debian do not supply a kernel for this machine, but if you have a
2.6.32 or thereabouts kernel then I see no obvious reason why Debian 5
(lenny) shouldn't run on this board, installed to an SD card. Debian
armel is built for v4t architecture which this board is. Due to the
limited resource and the probable need for a cross-install, using
Emdebian Grip might be helpful.

Not sure there are any others that support arm. So it's qemu or qemu.

There are. None that give detailed instructions for your board
particularly so far as I know, but I'd say these pages will be useful
starting points:

For running debian-arm in QEMU:

For creating a bootable image for your board:

Principal hats:  Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
