No, sorry. Your pocket PC has an Intel Xscale processor, which is based on the ARMv5 instruction set. The Ubuntu MID edition is only for a couple of x86 (AKA IA32) instruction set processors, namely menlow and mccaslin. Although there is an ARM port of ubuntu, it requires different ARM processors, namely the Cortex A8 ones.
