After having read the Linux Device Driver 2th Edition book from A. Rubini that is the bible of device driver writers, I suggest to you to get a simple PCI driver (usually char drivers are simpler than others) and study it. Probaly you can use it as a skeleton for your driver simply putting in them the difference on hardware access to your device from the original.
I don't think that commercial driver's development kits are a good choice under Linux ... you have the possibility to know all of your code why does not take the most of that ? :-)
