You will just need to compile a kernel ... the userland should run on that hardware.
I did the same sort of thing to get armedslack working on an AC100.

Oggetto: [ARMedslack] Armedslack on WM8650

Hello all :)

Was just wondering if anyone had tried to get armedslack to run on one of these devices at all? They're sort of a very cheap (found on ebay) small netbook -- WM8650 cpu @ 800mhz, 800x480 screen, 256mb and keyboard. They come in both netbook and tablet configurations, I'm using the netbook version.

Found a couple of other distros others had made/ported, namely debian and angstrom. Though it somehow looks like it uses the android kernel in conjuction with those distros in some way. 

I've briefly tried downloading the debian-based distro and replacing it with armedslack (it comes in two seconds - a fat section and a ext2 section). The idea is to create 2 partitions on an sd card, forat the first as fat, the second ext2 and then extract. Though I found if I replaced the distro (the files on the ext2 section) all it would do is lock up. The first part is just the boot loader and kernel (uzImage).

I guess it would need a special compile to get armedslack working.

Some links btw;
