Introduction to NDIS Driver Development

Drivers come in many forms as does the hardware they control.  Perhaps one of the simplest types of drivers to write for the NT kernel is an NDIS driver for network cards, simplest being in the context of kernel development.  That simplicity comes from how the framework used for NIC drivers abstracts away some of the manual setup needed for drivers, eliminating a lot of boilerplate code and making it easier to get a handle on the actual hardware operations being performed.  As such we will be introducing driver development using the RTL8139 driver developed for ReactOS.
