Kernel Programming/Device Drivers


Hey all. I love programming (especially in C) and have been considering working on device drivers, etc. So this requires kernel programming. I understand the basic concepts of kernel programming, but I just want to know if anyone has pointers on how to get started? I'm going through the kernel tree looking at the so-called 'dummy' drivers as a start, but would like input as well.

Here is a good book on writing kernel drivers. Several years ago I read a previous edition of this book and I recommend it.
