You have two choices...
The easy one: it doesn't work.
The complicated one: Start a port based on the existing Linux/MIPS
In short, sorry, there is no support for RM600 systems in current kernels
and it would take a significant amount of work (and documentation from
Siemens) to port the Linux/MIPS kernel to the RM600.
Some work was done by Ralf Baechle and me to port Linux to RM200C (PCI-
based machines, Ralf) and RM200/RM400 (ISA/EISA-based machines, me)
but the RM600 series is quite different. So your only choice right now
is Sinix or donating the machine to an interested Linux kernel hacker ;-).
