   There are some sample modules included 
with Apache to give you the basic structure.
Definitely see the documentation for "apxs", 
the Apache build tool, if you're not familiar 
with  it.  For comprehensive documentation 
taking you from no module experience to a 
good working understanding of Apache module 
development I found "The Apache Modules Book" 
by Nick Kew to be extremely helpful.
