The driver for the video is going to be part of the X-windows installation... that's kinda the idea with X, Nearly Everything is already there. The Windows problem of having to add hardware drivers for everything doesn't apply here...
First you have to find out what kind of video chipset it is. From the command prompt: lspci (one of them should say SVGA or VGA controller) Write that down and then:
or, for quick and dirty:
./XFree86 -configure (if it works you're going to have to hit ctrl+c to get out of it), then follow what it says to do next.
For sound, write down also what was in lspci and just post what it has as an audio controller.
As far as that second question, I'm kinda unclear, do you need to set up a dual-boot... how are you booting into Linux?
