Linux on Sharp Mobilon HC-4100

I would like to have Linux boot on the Sharp HC-4100 and have tried a
couple of suitable kernels with the following outcome:

netbsd tx3912               - netbsd 1.5.3 , keyboard functional
linux for philips velo      - vmlinux-2.4.0-test4-pre3 , keyboard not

Booting, but framebuffer scrambled
linux nino                  - vmlinux-2.4.17
linux sharp HC-4500/HC-4600 - vmlinux-2.3.21. vmlinux-2.3.47

I have tried to compile a kernel from versions - 2.4.20 and 2.4.0-test9 -
( sharp mobilon, philips velo, philips nino) which all boot but have the
framebuffer device scrambled.

Which kernel version is good to start from, and where would I find its code ?
Has somebody a working .config vor the Velo 500 available, so that I get
the correct options to have this damn framebuffer device working?

Please redirect, in case this should be the wrong place to post.
