Please do not use texting shorthand here---Spell out your words.


I don't think anyone can tell you how long it will take to learn a particular skill. Start by reading this book and working through the examples (See how long it takes you):

There are far too many variables involved for anyone to be able to tell you how long it would take for you to learn this skill. This depends completely on your experience level, past experiences, the rate you learn at, etc. The best thing anyone could do would be to tell you that you just have to start learning and see what pace you move at.

Look at the source as an example for any driver available with GNU/Linux. No better way to learn. Walk through the code.
