Default Need to know how to forge a Linux Driver

I'm a relatively experienced techie but brand new to Linux. Is there a straight forwards how to that gives a step by step guide to installing a driver in Linux from the basic .src source code?

I've looked for a while and you guys seem the best placed to either help or point me in the right direction - Thanks..

Is there a README or INSTALL file in the source directory? It should have instructions for installing the driver. Normally it goes like this:
Code:
./configure
make
make install
