    How are drivers installed in Linux? (Mandrake 10.0)


    I am absolutely new to linux. I've just installed Mandrake 10.0 and cannot connect to the Internet. I downloaded some drivers for my modem (Intel 536EP) but have no idea how to install them. I do not even know how to find them as they were saved under Windows XP on a different partition. Would anyone guide me, please!
    Many thanks!

    After reading the guide to asking good questions I started looking for answers in the forum.
    I hope I'll find the answer on my own.
    However I appreciate your help, if you can spare some minutes.
    For me, at this point, Linux is just a completely new world.

    I read the answer to a question related to my problem:
    Getting internet through Dial Up

    "you can use kppp program and select firstly query modem to see if linux recognises it...then make all the isp configuration as in windows"

    I did use the kppp program even before asking my first question here!
    Query modem did not detect my modem. So I guess Linux does not recognize it.
