I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Possible yes.. Easy No.. If we ignore all of the 9x/ME world (as I'm not sure about them) I would suggest you look into the "Native API".  This requires the DDK from MS and it has to be written in C/C++ but one can create a driver as such.  Be forewarned, it would be VERY easy to make a mistake and render the machine unbootable.
