There probably isn't a deb port for this yet, but you can get the non-GUI version from optware/cs08q1armel ipkg feed.
See http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/HomePage for feed setup instruction.

To get started, see
1. http://www.resc.rdg.ac.uk/twiki/bin/view/Resc/InfernoTutorial
2. http://www.xs4all.nl/~mechiel/inferno/getting-started.html
3. http://code.google.com/p/acme-sac/

If you've not familiar with plan9 and inferno school of thinking, be open-minded about the experience. For nothing else, it at least provides one more way to share resource among heterogeneous systems without the need of NFS or CIFS.

Cheers,

Mechiel Lukkien has made great progress porting native inferno to the SheevaPlug.
Now it's possible to tftp boot an inferno kernel to sh prompt. The Next task is ethernet driver.

For those interested, you can follow the development:
the mercurial repo for kirkwood port is at static-http://www.ueber.net/who/mjl/hg/kirkwood/
the inferno-os code at http://code.google.com/p/inferno-os/source/checkout

Congratulation goes to Mechiel Lukkien (mjl- in IRC), I only built and tested his kernel.
This is the first non-Linux OS I know that booted on the SheevaPlug, goes to show how portable inferno is.
In git notion, it's probably Unix == Plan9~1 == Inferno~2
