Linux (Ubuntu 10.04) Drivers needed for Acer Aspire T690

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Acer Apsire T690 3.0Ghz compy. My graphics and sound is integrated and I'm looking for the right drivers.
I would just run the driver search on ubuntu, however, that PC is not hooked up to the internet and cannot be easily. Is there a way for me to manually find and install the drivers I need on another computer, transfer and install them?
I searched on, but I couldn't find any drivers that were for my T690 and compatible with Linux. Any help?

What exactly are you having a problem with?

Is this what you have?

Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3000

Integrated RealTek ALC888

Yes, those are the integrated cards I have. The problem I'm having is I can't find a driver file that I can easily transfer from one PC to another. My T690 is not hooked up to the internet, so I can't download them automatically. I guess my two questions are 1) Are there drivers for the T690 that are compatible with ubuntu? and 2) Is there a place I can download them, transfer them to a flash drive, and manually install them in my T690?

Yes. When necessary, I use a different computer to download the drivers, burn them to cd, copy from cd to the desktop on the system that needs them, then install from there.

My question is, is there something that's not working properly? From what I can tell from here, the T690 uses integrated Intel chipsets.

System Chipset Intel 946GZ + ICH7
IIRC, Intel supplies drivers to the kernel devs, so no downloads should be necessary.
