I am not familiar with this book, but the definitive book for writing
Linux device drivers is probably "Linux Device Drivers," an OReilly
book by Alessandro Rubini and Jonathan Corbet. The second edition is
available online at http://www.xml.com/ldd/chapter/book/, but consider
purchasing the book if you can afford it. Many other resources are
available on the Web: try a Google search.
From your description of the problem, it seems that you might be trying
to use a version of gcc different from the one that the kernel was compiled
with and/or you are not defining the correct #define variables, e.g.,
__KERNEL__, at compile time. See /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes
(the path might be slightly different for Redhat) for what version of gcc
>is that the redhat 7.3 doesn't have kernel version 7.3.?
It is really meaningless to specify Redhat 7.3. What you should be targetting
is a particular version of the Linux kernel, or better yet, a range of
versions. I belive that Redhat 7.3 uses Linux kernel 2.4, but am not sure.
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/ should answer all of these.
Finally, this mailing list is not the right place for your question. Try
one of the comp.os.linux.* newsgroups.
