Unhappy Nokia IP530 linux install


I have a used Nokia IP530 device and I want to install linux (any relase). This device has not vga, cdrom, floppy, usb. There is only 2 ide port and I tried to attach a CDRom drive but could not boot from cdrom.

I need your advise about booting and starting installation from hdd. I can only use serial console. all boot and console messages need to be forwarded to ttyS0.

Appreciate if you can help..
