by standard, i mean just what users often get by default with one of the popular distros.

for example, uname, finger, vim, tmux, etc.

I have a galaxy tab 10.1 (android version 3.1, already rooted)

Also, I read somewhere about setting up a chroot on android to run full-fledged linux distros, such as debian. Is that possible?

    Android isn't a Linux distro, so these utilities are not standard at all. – Matthew Read Sep 5 '11 at 3:18

BusyBox for rooted devices gives many of Linux's standard utilities.

In terms of a real Linux distro, there are tons of How-Tos found on the web with a simple Google search. Specifically, here is a step-by-step guide from XDA-Developers forum on building a Debian image for, and installing it on, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
