The drivers on the CD will be for windows, Linux usually has the drivers built in. There should be an icon up in the top right on the bar at the top. It will look like two computers. Click it, it should list the networks. If it doesn't that means that linux doesn't have you drivers built in; If so you need to open terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type.

Code:
lsusb
Code:
lspci
Code:
dmesg
Copy and past the outputs here and someone might be able help.

Hope it helps.
