I own a Zaurus (C1000 series) and i've worked on running Debian armel on it.
You can read some informations about it on this webpage: http://zecrazytux.net/Geeky_stuffs/Zaurus/

Ressources can be found at oesf.org/forum.

Debian armel (EABI) runs great on the Zaurus. You'll need a large storage on a SD card for the rootfs.

The mighty way to "install" debian on a C1000 is by running a on-flash already flashed kernel and a base filesystem on a SD card.

Debian armel used to run great some month ago :)
I haven't took care of my Z for many months due to lack of time...
But let's try it !

Have a good day !
