Installing Linux drivers from a CD


Hey, I made a new pc just for linux.

The motherboard is an Asus A7v400-MX. I got a cd with it with drivers.

When i goto CDROM on the desktop (suse 9.0) i can see all the files on it etc.. but how do i install the drivers?

Are there linux-specific drivers on that CD?
If so - there should be a README or INSTALL file in there

With out knowing exactly what is on the CD but since it came with the motherboard I will assume these are windows drivers which will not work with linux.
