How to monitor the USB ports of an old IBM T41?

Hello everyone!
Besides my Macbook I got this old IBM T41 with Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it.
Currently, I'm working on developing a device driver for Ubuntu that'll monitor the USB ports of the computer, and report when a device has either been inserted or removed from either of the ports.
I have entirely read this tutorial: http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/drivers_linux?page=0%2C0, but that's about as much experience I got with device drivers. - I'm not completely new to working in this ring level though, as I have already developed my own little GUI toy OS.

Best regards,
Benjamin :cheer: .
