I have a little experience in win2000 ddk , maybe helpful?

It's  easy to develop device driver, you just copy from demo and change a little. That's all.

To develop device drivers, you need know
1. what is makefile
2. some debugging knowledge (I recommend <debugging application> by John Robbins)
3. a site (http://www.osr.com)
4. a debugger (I recommend Microsoft windbg because  it's free)
