It does work - I have CentOS 5.3 installed currently on my Geode.
But, it's very hard to install because it appears as a i586 machine.
CentOS doesn't support i586, so I had to install it on the hard drive
using another machine.
I guess it's possible there are subtle incompatibilities too, but I
haven't found them yet. OpenSSL appears to work OK.
I believe one of the issues is with liboil and the optimisations it
uses. I'm not 100% on the details but I think olpc has seen it,
