Building cross-compiler is not a user friendly job.

No, this does not exist.

I recommend installing Linux on your desktop computer, which costs you 
much less time to accomplish than building a cross-compiler. If you still need a 
cross-compiler, please read the buildfaq, and check out the forums, there 
is enough info about this topic available.
