I'm not exactly sure what you mean by rutins, but a vesa driver
comes with XFree3/4. All you need to do is configure your X
server via xf86config (type this at the console; you need of course
an X server installed). Your distribution may also have some advanced graphical setup tool (like sax2 on SuSE).

why do you need them. They come default with your distro. Give some more information. What are you using? Mandrake, Redhat? Are you having problems displaying the GUI? We need meat.

Do you have a working graphical environment? KDE, Gnome, something
like that? Then there's probably no need to download a vesa driver.

So no need to update a driver, or do you have a particular problem other than somebody said you should (why?)?
