Ok, you need to tell us what device you're looking for. Intel makes a LOT of things...is this a video card? NIC? What?? And you need to tell us what version/distro of Linux you're using.

And as far as drivers go...they're different from what you think of as a driver in Windows. 'Installing' one is a matter of loading the correct kernel module, with the modprobe command.

Are you sure that you need that driver? Most Intel devices are automatically recognized during installation and any needed "drivers" loaded. Open a terminal window and look at output of the lsmod command. Here's what the output (filtered for Intel stuff) looks like on this laptop:
Code:
$ lsmod | grep -i intel
snd_hda_intel          30392  3
snd_hda_codec          78624  2 snd_hda_codec_conexant,snd_hda_intel
snd_pcm                89240  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec
snd                    72968  12 snd_hda_codec_conexant,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_pcm,snd_timer
snd_page_alloc         10080  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm
