I am seeing an almost identical issue using an AMD Geode GX-MMX 333MHz
with 256M of ram in an Acrosser AR-B1554A.

Testing to determine other datapoints.  Woody installer boots linux
2.2.20 and 2.4.18.  Sarge installer boots linux 2.4.27 and 2.6.8.  But
Etch will not boot 2.6.18, Lenny will not boot 2.6.22 and Sid will not
boot 2.6.24.  Booting DSL-N boots linux 2.6.12 okay.  Booting an FC8
live cdrom boots linux 2.6.24 okay.
