Support for the 405 is included in the standard distributions. If you're not familiar with compiling a kernel, you'd save a lot of time and work by getting a development board with a tool chain already put together for you.

The basic toolbox is around 300 =80. One can set the kernel features with a graphical interface and also the contents of the rootfilesystem. If you are lucky, your development board is already supported, but you should ask them before.
