Sandya Menon,

The device nodes should already be in the file system.  If not they can be
created with "mknod".

As far as the pros and cons between modules...  That is a real open-ended
question.  That may depend on what you are trying to accomplish.
Communicating with something?  Printing?  Its like apples and oranges...
