Ok. You are going to use Linux as the "host" development machine,
and my understading is that you got MicroWindows running. Cool !!!.

Now, Install the RTEMS tools on this linux box, and compile
MicroWindows for RTEMS. Check the same demos, and see if they
run fine on your target. Later, start your own application.

Linux development is not the same as RTEMS development. You will
need two different compilers. One for Linux Development to check
your MicroWindows tests under Linux, and another one to
generate code for RTEMS.

If you are not familiar with embedded development, I would 
recommend getting the "Hello World" example that comes
with RTEMS up and running on your target before doing
anything else.
