Default [Q] Integrate drivers into AOSP ROM

Since I have my HTC Desire, I wanted to build a custom ROM, and read a lot about it.

Everything is pretty clear to me, except that I'm not sure about the drivers. I read the wiki of CyanogenMod, which tells you to use a script called 'extract-files.sh' to extract appropriate files from your CyanogenMod ROM on your HTC Desire.

Does this script take care of the driver integration? And if not, how can I integrate the drivers to make the hardware work?

Thanks in advance,

Chaosz-X.

The 'extract-files.sh' and 'unzip-files.sh' scripts just copy any needed proprietary files (not necessarily just drivers) from a connected phone or existing ROM to their correct locations before you compile the new ROM. Someone (you?) have to figure out which files are needed and adjust the scripts accordingly. Each device has a different 'extract-files.sh' and 'unzip-files.sh'.

If there is an existing vendor tree for your device or a similar device, I would start there.
