Question Downloading and installing drivers on GNU/Linux


Hi everybody!
Have you had to download drivers for GNU/Linux and install them when some device didn't work? Except nVidia/ATi drivers I mean. Just like in Windows. Or the only driver you can download for GNU/Linux is a driver for videocard and all other are in always in the system?
