Building .ko modules for ARM target kernel

Dear All:

I am completely new in Linux and ARM technology. I am trying to use the USB OTG HOST of my Glomation GESBC-3130S board running Linux The Board uses a LPX-3130 ARM but the embedded Kernel does not include the module to support USB to Serial adaptor.

I need to build a loadable module with the FTDI sources ( I have them ftdi.c and ftdi.h from the Prolific, the manufacturer of adaptor) to provide this capability to my board, but I have no idea where to start.

I am using Sourcery CodeBench ARM-Linux on my host Windows computer. I do not intent to build a whole ew Kernel, just the .ko module and load it with modprobe or other command when required.

Can someone help me with this project and guide me through the process ? I will very much appreciate this indeed. Cheers. Nelson (
