I agree with John, your problem is ill defined. Most likely what you
think you want to do is not what you should be doing.


Start by getting Knuth's MMIXware running. It's this package at
http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/programs/mmix-20060918.tar.gz
which could have been found with trivial googling.


If you manage to get small assembler programs running, then get and
build gcc for MMIX.
