If you wanna try out one of the beta releases, the above Fonera DD-WRT beta firmware versions seem to be most recommended in the forums / have least buggy features. As of writing the latest Fonera DD-WRT version was 04/25.
 Flashing of a LaFonera
To flash your Fonera with DD-WRT for the first time, follow the Initial Flashing guide.
To upgrade the DD-WRT firmware on your Fonera, follow the Upgrade Flashing guide.
 Building DD-WRT for the LaFonera from Source
 Downloading the sources via SVN
svn co svn://svn.dd-wrt.com/DD-WRT DD-WRT will download the complete source-files in a directory called DD-WRT.
Please note that this is a very large download (really very hughe, currently (may 2007) downloads 8.4GB of source code), so be prepared that it might take a while. Compared to OpenWrt Kamikaze with only 60MB. Kamikaze with all packages and source tarballs downloads about 500MB.
the makefile you need for this task is src/router/Makefile.ar531x which simply can be called by make -f Makefile.ar531x all the sources should be within the svn, but i was not able yet to check if everything is compileable. if a third party is able to test this i will give him advices if he has troubles. (the last time this worked good together with "Tornado")
Update: When trying to compile using that makefile, the following is returned,
total@C-Dog:~/DD-WRT$ make -f Makefile.ar531x
make: Makefile.ar531x: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.ar531x'. Stop.
comment: change to src/router as written in the instructions.
