    kernel.org has the definite information about the Linux kernel. But what is it you want to accomplish? Your question is a bit unspecific.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If you are porting the Linux kernel to a new processor family (one that is not currently supported), then you need to study how other ports were done - go to www.kernel.org for that information. Mostly though, the key CPU and memory management stuff will need to be implemented in assembler code, and you will need a gcc cross-compiler and compatible assembler for the gear. This is not a job for a newbie, but typically for a seasoned engineer who knows the target hardware very, very well, or a student who has a lot of time to learn the subject matter.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
