you don't get them from anywhere, you should already have them. (does windows come with them built-in?? nah thought not..)

looking here though, your card could have one of two different chipsets. http://www.cws.net.au/leadtek/tv2000e.html if it's the 878 one, try "modprobe bttv", if it's the CX2388X then "modprobe cx88". if you get a file not found message or such, then you might need to recompile your kernel, but i really would assume that slack 10.0 has the drivers built just fine.

mythtv doesn't detect the video card. there are layers of abstraction inbetween the two parts of your system, meaning they don't directly have any contact. once you've modprobed bttv, look at the output from "dmesg" to see if it picked up the card. after that and standard tv viewier, e.g. xawtv will run just fine, fingers crossed.
