    Question How to add new device driver?

    hi ,
    I am nataraj asture final year student of B.E .Me and our friends are doing project to develope a RAM disk driver in linux Operating system we have problem in adding that driver to our kernel by removing the old kernel.
    I have also read one articles in many sites but they r not clearly mentioned the steps and problems occuring during configuration.
    If someone helps me it will be better for us to successfully load our driver onto the system.

    Try by loading the module?

    insmod to add module
    rmmod to remove module
    lsmod to list loaded modules

    I've been using linux quite some time (but still consider myself a n00b).
    Anytime I've had to load a driver, I used insmod.

    I don't have any other experience other than that.

    The distros I use seem to find all my hardware.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
