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.
