The idea of instaling Linux on a PC and then using that to netboot the
HP computers is sound. However I don't recommend crosscompiling linux
unless you have lots of experience with Unix/Linux. I've installed
Debian on a sparc system by booting off the network using a precompiled
boot image I got from the debian ftp server. I recommend that you find
such a precompiled image for the architecture you wish to install on.

This process is described in the installation manual for the hppa

Hope this helps,
