The short answer is likely to be no.

There is support for the PXA255 processor in the tree, but there are
no drivers for the H5xxx ASIC.

The HP/Compaq/DEC bootldr for iPAQs does support booting NetBSD, but
there isn't any one of the NetBSD ports that collects together all the
bits that you would need.

Do you want to keep WinCE on it or replace it ?
