Drivers For Linux

I want to be able to upload images from my digital camera directly into linux for editing in gimp - HOWEVER - Annoyingly linux doesnt come with the appropriate drivers for My SHOTZ Model Shots camera (see link below for more details)

Was wondering if anyone here knew of a good website to download new drivers for linux from...

Additionally I installed the linux driver for my epson c42 stylus printer - but the test page didnt seem to print in a high quality - do I need to recofigure something?

Moving to the Linux - Hardware

I've had a lot of luck using a USB card reader and USB Mass Storage Device as the module to read the cards. Check out some threads around here on it, I don't seem to be alone

As for the printer, it might not have the high quality capabilities in Linux as it may very well be software enabled.
