can u suggest me how to start with porting linux on to mpc8250
the host system i am using is i386 processor with redhat 9 linux running on
and the porting on to mpc8250 as target system.
some body has suggested me to first go for developing a toolchain setup.
can any one suggest me how to proceed for this as this tool chain should be
a host /target development toolchain, with some cross compilers etc.

please help me out in this regards

bye mallikarjuna.
