    1. As the root user, add this line to the end of your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

    deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free

    2. Then run apt-get update to sync to the latest repository and
    apt-get install skype to install the latest version of Skype on your computer.
    Using Skype's yum repository

    1. As the root user, create the file /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo containing:

    [skype]
    name=Skype Repository
    baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/3/updates/i586/
    gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc

    2. Then run yum install skype to install the latest version of Skype on your computer.

    This should give you the ability to use skype phones on your system and include the necessary drivers. If it doesnt then I am not sure where to get them.
