[U-Boot] Porting u-boot to a custom fpga/ppc

I am sorry if this is a question that has been answered before. It is
just that the entire project is overwhelming right now. So I will ask
for some guidance.
I need to write/port a bootloader to start a Xilinx virtex5 PPC. It is
going to be running on a custom FPGA. I am not really sure where I
begin, what files to create, modify, configure, etc...
I do have a problem that I am not sure is obviously resolvable. I will
packaging the bootloader with the FPGA firmware files, they will be
written into the BRAM via a PCI bus. The problem is that the MAC
address will not be resolved until the bootloader/firmware package has
been made. Is there a way that I could write this value (via script?)
after the load? Maybe I just don't understand the ways that the MAC
address can be written.
Thanks for any help you can give! I understand that I am asking a large
general question, but I need some help finding the right road.
