Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
dependant of wether you can find a distribution for the specified processor or not (more then likely a uclinux based distribution) might work, especially if you can get the device to boot off the sd card
if theres one thing ive learnd is that with enough effort linux can be ported to almost anything, for instance i have linux running on my WRT54G wireless router i bought from wal-mart, so in answer to your question the first step is finding a linux distribution that runs on your machine if such has been made yet and the second is reading the documentation on how to put that on your machine, either an sd or thumb drive based installer, via ethernet or a pre-configured firmware image to 'flash' onto the device either by push (pc to device) or pull (utility on the device loading from a pc) or from a flash device, no matter what though it does not sound like a trivial deal
