Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As part of our new product developement,we identified i5 and Qm57 as our procesor and chipset and we placed same in a custom board.Please let me know which all are files in linux source tree we need to modify for porting same into custom board.In our case the custom board is certified by SuSE SLES11.So
1)Is it run without any modification done in the kernel source code of SuSE SLES11?
2)if this is not possible,please let me know which files we need to edit to handle modified memmory maps,changed chipselect,board-specfic GPIO assignments.
3)Our host is 32bit architecture. Is it possible to install SuSE SLES11(64bit OS) on this architecture? Is it possible to compile and generate code for 64 bit architecture compatible to i5 processor using the default toolchain available with SuSE SLES11?
My embedded development target is i5 processor with QM57 chipset.Linux kernel used in the target is SuSE SLES11. I want to setup a toolchain in the target and i need to build the source from the target itself. To what extent it is feasible?
I will rephrase your question, to make sure I correctly understand it. You have an embedded Linux host (the target), which presently does not contain a native toolchain. You want to create one, so that you can use the target to build natively. The embedded target host is using an x86 compatible CPU (i5? Not familiar with this, but guessing from the SLES 11.1 kernel).
If this is the case, then simply copying an existing x86 toolchain to the host would seem fairly straightforward. The biggest challenge will be determining all of the required components that constitute the toolchain.
