Not from firsthand experience.

I am pretty sure there IS a book on Real Time Linux at Nerdbooks... I saw
it on the shelf a couple of weeks ago... it just didn't have RTLinux in
the title.

I have a couple of books on embedded linux... and while I think they are
pretty good books, they both have the weakness of not working straight
from source... they depend on pre-packaged elements to make the process
"easy" but may not continue to be available.  I suspect that
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ may be a valuable thing to play
with... and get familiar with the structure of kernel drivers.
