I suggest you follow a tutorial written by Jim (James) Lynch.

What is your target processor ????

The tutorial has title
USING OPEN SOURCE TOOLS FOR AT91SAM7S CROSS DEVELOPMENT by James P.
Lynch

and is available through
http://www.at91.com/Pages/products/microcontroller...

It is written for AT91SAM7S and you have to transfer the knowledge to
LPC2138

Greetings
Stefan

James Lynch's Tutorials are very good but as far as I know there is no
instruction for installation of WinARM. I have not read the latest
version so far but IRC the installation of the gnuarm-package is
discussed.

WinARM "installation" is to unpack the archive to C:\WinARM and add
C:\WinARM\bin and C:\WinARM\utils\bin to the search path as written in
the readme-file. See this page:
http://www.dreamislife.com/arm/winarm.html.

If this all so too complicated for you you might use the Codesourcery
arm-package, gnuarm or Yagarto which include a "setup" or "installer".
While packages like the one from Codesourcery, Yagarto, gnuarm or WinARM
include basicly the same set of GNU-tools (gcc etc.) there might be
small differences how the tools are configured (esp. multilib-settings
and newlib-configuration). I have tested the examples that come with
WinARM or are available from my web-pages with my WinARM-collection -
obviously (only exception so far: the LMI Cortex-M3 examples). Maybe
small modifications are needed when using other collections.

The general discussion about using the gnu-tools and the example-source
from Lynch's tutorials should be usable with all precompiled packages
but if you like to follow Jim Lynch's tutorials you should also use the
same setup he has used.

When using WinARM I recommend to first try one of the examples included
in the package or available from my web-pages: Programmers-Notpad->Open
Project->Open the makefile of the project -> double-click Makefile in
the files-tree (to set the "active directory) -> Tools/make all ->
transfer load-image (hex or bin) to Controller. The is no
"project-wizard" for new projects in WinARM. If you are using AT91SAM7
you might start with a copy of the gamma-example, for LPC2000 a good
starting point might be a project of the "NXP/Philips examples". Modify
them too your needs.

Dharmendra,

don't follow the blue rabbit - ehm - ftp link. Click on the "USING OPEN
SOURCE TOOLS FOR AT91SAM7S CROSS DEVELOPMENT by James P. Lynch" title.
This leds to http://www.at91.com/thirdparty/j_lynch/jlynch.pdf
