I've had the config at http://sunsparc.org/linux/sun4m-up-2.4.config
along with the latest 2.4 kernel from vger cvs (see
http://vger.samba.org/) working on some of my sun4m machines.

Be _absolutely_ sure to check out the 2.4.x kernel and NOT the 2.5.x
kernel from there... 

cvs -z3 -d :pserver:cvs@vger.samba.org:/vger co -r linux_2_4 linux

... if you don't do the "-r linux_2_4", you'll get the 2.5 kernel and it
will definitely not work.

Stability issues might need to be addressed yet, but it at least seems
to boot for me, etc.  (Also, I used the cross compiler I make in
http://sunsparc.org/linux/xcompile/ to build it on my x86 notebook
computer... much faster that way.)
