OpenWRT works very well on most versions of the Linksys WRT54G series but v5 and v6 are exceptions because of severely restricted memory. ddWRT has a micro version that works for these versions. I've not long ago flashed OpenWRT onto a WRT54Gv3 and onto a WRT54GL, and ddWRT(micro) onto a WRT54Gv5. All three seem to work well. I have some notes pertaining to these experiences which I'm happy to share if anyone wishes them.
