Need help about reading writing data to Virtex II Pro board

Hey I am a beginner learning to use Virtex II Pro board XC2VP30.

I plan to read and write data between my laptop and the board by using the RS 232.

But I am confused about the procedure.

1) Do I have to install EDK in order to store my data entered from my laptop to the board ?

2) If so, there is the procedure I am thinking to run. Please correct me if it does not make any sense.

  a) install ISE and EDK

  b) generate bit file and load it to the board

  c) write c codes from pc end and compile it using XPS shell window ?(not sure )


3) should i need to generate system netlist... so on ?


Is there any step I left out ?

Please let me know if anyone know where I can find tutorial, reference data or books about how to do this.

I greatly appreciate it.
