My scenario is to create secondary site server which can communicate primary site server in sccm 2007 which are install on separate machine. I have install primary site server in one machine and i tried to install secondary site server on another machine but it doesn't make any console in it. How can i find that secondary server is installed or not and how they communicate each other. Ihave to deploy S/W distribution using both site server. How can do it. Please give some suggestions.

You need to ensure that the site server computer account is a local administrator on the secondary site server and that secondary server is member of the SiteToSiteconnection group on the primary.
You also need to ensure that secure key exchange is configured - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb633269.aspx

console will only connect to a Primary
you administer a secondary from the primary it is attached too in the site settings ... if the secondary doesn't show up there, then it didn't attach properly, as Kent mentions check to see if the keys exchanged http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/library/bb693690.aspx

Client will not discovery a secondary site code, they will only see the primary site server’s code of XYZ.

There is never a console on the secondary server.Console can only be present on the primary. To know whether a secondary has been successfully installed or not you have to check for the presence of the site from the primary's console (it will be seen if you click the primary site icon on the console and can also be seen under the site system icon of the console).
Below links will prove helpful to you for setting up a secondary correctly:
Since you have mentioned that you need to use this site for S/W distribution purpose so you must also enable the DP role for the secondary.After you are done installing the secondary successfully target some test packages to the secondary to see whether it works or not(packages will start getting copied under SMSPKGdrive$ folder), if they are getting copied then you can now use this secondary as a DP.
