What exactly do I need to know in order to develop drivers for Windows [XP, Vista, 7, etc]? Such as software and knowledge. I've taken a Java programming course (college), but that's about it.

You would need to learn C or C++ for starters, the Windows driver model API, a compiler, and finally you would need some pretty detailed specifications regarding the hardware and how it is supposed to operate when this or that signal is received. There might be a few other things, but that would be at least an overview of the sort of things you'd need.
