I would recommend getting the latest kernel source from
cvs.paris-linux.org and compiling a new kernel with STI
Make sure that the following is in your ~/.cvsrc
cvs -z3 -q
cvs co linux palo
make menuconfig (enable fbdev and all the goodies you need)
... munge ./palo/Makefile for any custom parameters to your kernel
Then boot ./palo/lifimage :)
