Question Where can I find a driver for pcmcia HP external cdrewriter

Hi all,
This is only my second post and I am only four weeks into Linux so bear with me.
Hardware : maxdata laptop - PIII 600 internal cdrom - external HP pcmcia M820 series cdrewriter.
Software : RH 7.2 - Apache - Mysql - php -Dual boot win ME (only cause I cant make my rcdrw work)
I have been able to make everything work (after 4 reinstalls though) except my cdrewriter.
My question is do I need a special software driver to get my external cdrw to work as I did with my winmodem.
if so where do I start looking, I have searched but can find nothing on external pcmcia card cdrewriters.
Any help would be appreciated as I am really chuffed with Linux so far and what I have been able to achieve
with it so far. Oh and where can I get that 'penguin' as a background?
Thanks Jeff
