Pinnacle PCTVStereo Tuner card support

Hello Linux Users, I recently installed RedHat Enterprise Linux WS 4 on my system. I already have Windows XP running on my system. I installed RPM file for Mp3 support and compiled the source file for Mplayer successfully. Now I have both audio and video support under Linux. But I can't able to find out the proper drivers for the following 3 hardwares.

1. Pinnacle PCTV Stereo PCI Tuner Card
2 D-LINK DFM-560iS-IM Internal Modem
3. HP Deskjet D2360 Inkjet Printer

Please kindly tell me how to solve these 3 hardware compatibility issues under RedHat Enterprise Linux WS 4. So I can completly switch over my PC to Enterprise Linux by removing Windows XP.

You can solve the Pinnacle TV Tuner issue in one of two ways:
1) Purchase a supported TV Tuner card and get rid of the Pinnacle.
2) Try FreeBSD. They claim to have a driver that supports that card.

I was never able to get my Pinnacle TV Tuner card working. I finally purchased a Hauppauge card.
