Download the Embedded Linux Development Kit (ELDK) from

This is the #1 easiest solution (in my book at least) to a cross
development environment.

Read the documentation there DENX U-Boot and Linux Guide (DULG) -- while
it says 8xx, it generally applies to all PowerPCs.

If you need a boot loader (quite likely), look at u-boot.  Download it
and read the README file for instructions on how to port it to your
hardware.  U-boot is also associated with Wolfgang Denks (denx.de).

Good luck and read carefully.  There is a wealth of good information in
those resources.
