Linux doesn't use windows drivers. Your driver on the CD is for Windows. Not for Ubuntu Linux.
Why do you need drivers anyway. Is anything not working properly?

Can you please tell us what kind of problems you have?

And for the graphics problem, please post make and model of the monitor as well as the output of lspci |grep -i vga. You run this command in a terminal (menu applications -> accessories -> terminal).

Code:
wim@desktop1:~$ lspci |grep -i vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM)] (rev a1)

I suggest that you answer this question.

I have been running 9.10 since Alpha1 testing. I seriously doubt that this is a driver problem.

As long as you insist on assuming that MS is the model on which Linux in general, and Ubuntu in particular, are based, you are going to have problems.

Settle down, remember to breath. Remember that folks here are not paid to do this, they want to help. Yelling is no productive or conducive to help.

Some real information would be good.

What is your box? Give specs.

Have you updated?

What have you done to configure your box for sound?

What have you done to configure your box for video?

Do not try RPM drivers, you have no idea how to install them and they may well not be compatible with 9.10 which uses a much newer kernel.

You should go to this site and see what they have to say about repositories and so forth;

i sincerely apologise for any disrespect...
the output at the terminal :
arvin@arvin-desktop:~$ lspci |grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)


In the display section no monitor is detected.
And the resolution of my display screen is limited to 800*600;although it achieved higher resolutions when i used XP and INtel drivers.
need help regarding this...
thanks
