    I don't think there are any active distros for your needs.

    This is about the best info I could find.
    TuxMobil: Debian GNU/Linux for PDAs an Unofficial Proposal

    There are only a few distros with official support for MIPS processors, Debian being one of them.

    You can probably install a Debian minimal build for MIPS and slowly add programs until it gets too slow, at which time uninstall the last program. You will be pioneering an old piece of hardware, but if you have the time and inclination, it should be interesting. You could then post an article detailing the steps you used to getting it working for those who want to do the same.
