Question Looking for RH 9 drivers...

Hi! I am looking for some drivers using the search engines but so far I have found nothing. Is there a site or a group of internet places where someone can find drivers for Linux? My version is RedHat 9 and my devices an HP psc 1310 printer and a wifi linksys wireless-G pci netcard. Any thoughts? I appreciate your help

p.s. Do these drivers have a rpm extension??? Generally, all the RH9 drivers have a rpm extension? I still cannot understand exactly what this extension stands for.

Is your card on here?

or here?

rpm is "redhat package manager" - you probably won't find an rpm for the driver for your card.

Thank you very much, it is in the second link. However the driver file is a .exe file. How am I supposed to execute this from linux? Furthermore I see that it is a driver that works only for win 2000 and xp
