It discusses all kinds of issues: starting with the toolchains you'll be using, through how you'll download and execute from your development to your target system, through how to tailor the kernel and the system to your particular needs. It covers a wide variety of architectures (from ARM through our old friend ix86 to other, more exotic, platforms). It covers a wide range of applications (industrial control, kiosks, etc). It covers design, it covers debugging. It even talks (frequently!) about "busybox".
If you're considering an embedded system with Linux, you absolutely need and want this book.

i am also new to Embedded linux , and i have the book which u suggested and it is excellent.
My questions is: i got a board with ARM9 to start embedded Linux. the chip itself is preloaded with Kernel 2.6.
The steps needed to build the tool chain as explained by Yaghmour, has the first step "Kernel Headers setup" .
Can i skip this step and use the one already in the uC ?
or i have to do this step?
