Thanks Koen, I finally managed to install ROS on my BB-xM, though (I am 
still open for any suggestions). I did the following:

   1. Installed Ubuntu 10.04 as described here:
   2. Configured network access
   3. Built ROS from source as described here:

I had some problems with installing dependencies via apt-get (I think 
the build script should be a little more verbose about what it is 
currently doing, which would have spared me some time), but I finally 
got through this. A 4GB microSD is enough.
