You can check RTAI, Xenomai project. Maybe they already support it.

Thanks for the reply

i was browsing through some doc and came to know that MPC7410also works on same 6xx core, and linux kernel supports embedded6xx platform already. In that case, i dont have to tweak the initialization part of the kernel..rite ?
i found a platform called "linkstation" which is kinda similar to our board. So trying to understand and implement as linkstation did. Is that OK ?

I don't know linkstation board but you are in right direction, searching same CPU core, you got, and searching similar to your board.
