You'll get better answers to this question on the debian-arm mailing
list [1]. The answer will depend on the exact piece of hardware you're
trying to install Debian on.

For quite a few devices the regular Debian installer will work, but you
might need to tell the boot loader where to find the installer. Again,
how to do that depends on the particular machine.

I have Debian (with Sugar on top) running fine on an OpenRD-Base.
Installation was done using the "foreign" mode of debootstrap (because
at that time the Debian installer did not support OpenRD yet).

For help with running Sugar on Debian once you get the latter running,
please see the debian-olpc-devel [2] list and the Debian Sugar wiki
page [3]. For general Sugar questions sugar-devel [4] is the best choice.
