Hi!
Gentoo and Slackware support this.
Have a look here for a list of i486 distributions: 
http://distrowatch.com/search.php?architecture=i486

But, you could patch your kernel, so the Geode will be running i686 
fine. It nearly supports all i686-instructions. Only NOPL is missing.

You can find this patch here: http://teknoraver.net/software/geode/

Cheers,
Conrad
