Default Can you install Android on a non-Android phone?

I have the touch-screen LG Sentio from T-Mobile. I was wondering if there was any way to install Android on my phone? If this makes a difference, it is 3G and has a 240x400 3" screen.

The Nokia N900, various WinMo devices (not just the HD2, older ones too) and the iPhone have been made to dual-boot Android.

The LG Sentio is a dumbphone. Dumbphones don't get to play, sorry.

I remember reading about some people hacking the iPhone (3GS I think) and running Android OS on it. Not sure which Android version tho.
