Ah found it at last. You know when you just look WAY too hard for something...

Okay my two cents then:

Be prepared to read a lot of things.

You need an IDE (maybe) - since you are a beginner - first build a single hello world program on the command line - then get an IDE of your choice (I use Eclipse)
This will put a lot of power at your fingertips. Be prepared to read a lot of things.

http://drpbox.knetconnect.com/KeK/ Has all manner of awesome tools including one of these

You need a TC (Toolchain) - This helpful thing prevents you having to cross compile half of the workload for every build (read: it saves you 40 mins over Cross Tools NG)

I recommend the CS (Code Sourcery) 2008q1 2007q3 now since it is the last TC that compiles natively (Runs applications without replacing the onboard system libraries) for the Kindle 3 - other kindles will require a later chain for example...

FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS THREAD and you wont go far wrong.

I have several TC's installed for the purposes of testing following this excellent - painless - method. (PICTURE ENC.)

well... That's enough to get you started.

There are several threads on Things That Go Wrong - I expand on this below I believe

Get those simple steps working and you are a big leap closer.

Thanks mate for the great resources, hope these tips helps someone one day.
