Yeah I would look at MiniMyth (http://www.linpvr.org/). Was designed for the
Epia-M boards to start with, but the latest release should be compatible
with just about any x86 system I think. I believe there are good
instructions on how to get it up and running too (not tried it yet, don't
have the hardware atm)
