I agree 100% with Ralf.

Note that the Porting Guide in conjunction with the existing ports
should be very helpful to you.  And don't be afraid to ask questions.

Start by compiling and using one of the other ports on a simulator so
you will have it as a point of comparison.  The mips, powerpc, or
sparc simulator BSPs I mentioned earlier this week are VERY helpful
when you want to compare behavior.  SOmetimes you want to see what
the state of RTEMS should be at a particular point in a test or
during the init sequence and that is VERY VERY useful.
