Based on some Google results, it seems that this device uses a CPU
from Cavium, possibly the ECONA CNS3420 SOC 600MHz (Dual-Core).

I can see there's initial support for this CPU in the Linux kernel, so
it might be possible to get it working.  However, I suspect that it
would be quite a bit of work, including kernel work.

If the device really uses a Marvell cpu, it might be easier to run
Debian but it would still require some work.
