In Linux. a driver is called a module.
here is a simple module source:


#include <linux/module.h>int init_module (void)
{printk("Heil Hitler"); return 0;}

int cleanup_module(void)
{printk("Heil Furher") ; return 0;}

Linux Device Drivers

I don't know much about it myself, but if you want a good book I'd recommend taking a look at Linux Device Drivers, published by O'Reilly. Here's the info:

Linux Device Drivers, Third Edition
By Jonathan Corbet, Alessandro Rubini, Greg Kroah-Hartman
Third Edition February 2005
ISBN: 0-596-00590-3
640 pages, $39.95 US, $55.95 CA, 28.50 UK

(There's no shame in giving a plug for your favorite publisher.)
