Installing drivers / programmes howto

i'm useing linux for a while and now i was wondering how to install stuff like drivers!
I just bought a new networkcard the isn't detected by linux so i was wondering how to install the netorkcard since i can't find any ./configure ... install ... on the floppy.

Another questin:
I just downloaded IPTABLES and wanted to install them, but i ran here in teh same problem! no install or configure to make the install.
I read something about that it has to be compiled within your kernel so you can activate it with make menuconfig

thnx in advance
