It's possible to run Debian armel on this hardware.

The installer won't work. ARM is not like x86 where one
kernel/installer will work on the majority of PCs. On ARM, you need a
kernel for each CPU/SoC platform and you have to add support in the
installer for each platform and for each device.
Debian doesn't offer a kernel for the PXA168 and neither do we have
support in the installer.
You basically have three options:
a) Generate a Debian kernel package for PXA168 and adapt the installer
so it will use your custom repo.
b) Use debootstrap to generate a Debian base system, build your own
kernel and offer that to download for users.
c) Add a PXA168 kernel to Debian and add support in Debian. I don't
know how much interest there's in PXA168 though.
