matrix differentiation


Hi 

   I want to differentiate an expression like 

f(y) = X'{(w'*X)(X'*w')}X with respect X where each of these elements are 
matrices. 

X is of the order N X 1 matrix 
w is of the order N X N matrix 
f(y) is of the order of 1 X 1 matrix

X' is the transpose of X and w' is the transpose of w 

if X = [x0 x1] ( for eg ) and say N = 2 

Can any one help me how do i get the gradient of f(y) with respect to X
