Michael P. Collins:
	I am not familiar UNIX,I use WIN95,98,Through Gerke Kok's help I found the 
place to download RTEMS,but for me it is quite a lot of resource,I don't know
which is useful,I am now reading some document from RTEMS,but I want to know
to a new user,what he must do?I know something with multitask program,familiar
with MC683XX,I am using SDS's compiler and EST's emulator to debug my system.
can this compiler and emulator be used in using RTEMS?When using RTEMS,can 
BDM work?Can anybody give me some examples based on MC683XX? So many questions,
but I am interested at it and did want to learn from you.Thanks.
