    There are many ways to do this.

    If you know anything about playing drums, then you can either enter each beat separately (using the step editor in a sequencer) or you can program a keyboard to send on channel 10 (normal channel for drums in midi sequencers) and play the 'notes' using the keys.

    Unless you know a little about playing the drums, this usually doesn't result in a very good track, because you don't have the 'feel' of a drummer.

    Alternatively, there are plenty of programs around which allow you to setup a sequence of patterns and fills, etc. - I guess this is probably the way most people work. Fruity Loops is popular for this, as is Drum-a-Gog - but I'm not the best person to ask about these applications, since I work using a keyboard.
