Very unlikely.  We've had a couple of these Open Root Kit machines in
the office for the past few days, and it seems they're quite linux
centric - something to do with having a modified lilo in the BIOS.  I
didn't get a chance to play, but a colleague gave up after a while.
Even NetBSD doesn't support them, only the MIPS versions.

Good luck though, I wouldn't mind being proved wrong - they seem quite
handy (size-wise).
