distro to install on smart book with wm8505 arm processor

Those of you who read the "mobile" forum will perhaps know that I've recently resurrected the CE operating system on my cheapo Chinese net book. I don't like the Windows OS at all.
Does anyone know if it's possible to install a small Linux distro instead of the embedded CE?
The spec is as follows:
EPC 7" Smart Book (model BL07-W, I think)
CPU Via WM8505 ARM 300MHZ
Hard drive 2GB flash
RAM 256
OS CE 6.0

Any input would be appreciated.

There is a TON of great information on the 7" ARM netbooks here:
