Question NetBSD on N900 Mobilephone?

My Mobile is Nokia N900 with (Cortex-A8) 600MHz CPU.
How can i install NetBSD (Maybe acorn32 ver) on it?
At first step I don't need any more application (Such as Calling or SMSing).
Is anyone try that?
Thanks For Guiding me.

There are very few NetBSD users around here so you are probably better off seeking help on NetBSD mailing list. Personally I would be very surprised that you can install NetBSD on that phone unless you are developer. acorn32 is not listed as Tier I which means that binaries are generated by cross compilation on something like amd64 and not tested in ages if ever. Unfortunately even some of very few architectures listed as their Tier 1 like sparc64 have poor support for real hardware.

There's a project called DeforaOS, which is aimed at creating a mobile/tablet desktop environment based on NetBSD (and possibly other kernels). Their website has got some code and some screenshots, but I'm not sure about its usability (and it seems to be developed by a standalone coder):
