If you would like to simulate EDK based designs(Processor) then you need to use either ModelSim SE/PE or Ncsim depending on which EDK
version you are using.
For HDL based designs, you can either use ISE Simulator or MXE Starter or MXE.

Simulating an EDK design in ISE simulator is a decidedly slow and painful process,
and will almost certainly exceed the limits of the ISIM Lite version in either Webpack or regular ISE.
The ISIM full version will do it, if you take the trouble to work around all the bugs and problems.
But it's definitely MUCH easier in Modelsim, and more reliable, if that is an option for you.
(Do any of the Modelsim XE versions run under Linux?)

A few notes:
- ModelSim XE is only offered for Windows.
- MXE does not have SmartModel support, thus will not be able to load the models for Hard IP such as the PowerPC or the Embedded PCI block.
- EDK libs are not tested against MXE and thus successful simulation results are not guaranteed.
