How to attach a kernel module with kernel source code

Hi all,

I am using openSUSE.I have made a kernel module.Now I want to attach the source code of my module to the source code of the kernel.So, I want to know in which position can I attach my source code such that it will call my module.If we need to add my code in the Makefile then at which position I should attach my code.
Finally It would be very helpful if anyone please tell me step by step procedure of compiling that kernel source code.

Thanks to all in advance

What does your module do ?

Have you successfully compiled your module through makefile ?

Have you inserted your module in kernel by insmod or modprobe ?
If so, what happened then ?
If not, why not ?

You should read Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt in the kernel source directory
