Essentially you can run linux 2.4 environments. Kernel 2.6 emulation has limited support that few enthusiasts worked on though at least something booted up for me, and anything 3.x failed miserably.
The install-script for brands is geared toward specific releases, though slme things can be tweaked to add other distros. For my tests it was easier to install a minimal env in virtualbox, tar it and unpack as the zone-root and try to boot it.
Of relatively recent distros, debian6 seemed to work, and centos/rhel v3.
