Terminal Install

I forgot a lot of stuff since the last time I used Linux, but I'm using it again because I found out what my problem was my first time. It hated my Graphics card. Anyway, I have a new device that uses drivers that I'm not finding on the Update stuff, and I don't quite remember how to get it. I cant find a tar.gz file or anything of the sort of it, so I'm trying to find it with the terminal, but I forget how. The package should be called zd1211 or zd1211rw. It is drivers for my Wi-Fi USB Connector. I know there ARE Linux Drivers developed for it, because I was checking online for the last 10-20 minutes, but I'll be damned if I can find it online.

Any assistance with this problem would be wonderful, and sorry for forgetting the basics =X


Edit: Nevermind, I forgot about the Package Manager, and I think I found it on that. My bad.

From your profile, it says you are using Ubuntu? Is that correct? If so, click on "system" at the upper left part of your screen. Select "administration", then "network tools". Look and see if there is already a listing for your wireless device. You can use this tool to enter your network settings if the device is recognized. Most likely, the device is already recognized. That device is supposed to work out of the box with Ubuntu 7.04
