Unhappy New To Linux - Need to Use Devices

I am new to linux and need some help, i have the following laptop:
- Sony Vaio Picturebook PCG-C1XN
- 64mb RAM
- 6GB Linux Partion with Red Hat linux (the WinLinux version, compact laptop install used)

My linux install has KDE and console access

I would like to install the following onto my laptop:

USB CD-ROM (FreeCOM Classic Series USB 1 or 2)
USB Floppy Disk (Bootable, Windows uses driver disk for this)
PCICMA Modem (Sitecom PCcard V92)
IR Port (Not sure about details)

I can access the Modem, CD and Floppy drive from Windows 98 so have access to files if needed.

Any help would be appreciated...
