you should in most cases not need to download any drivers,
they are most probably already included in your linux distribution.
hope you'll find your nic, and which module /driver it uses.
you can then decide to compile it fix into your kernel,
or load it as module - see modules-howto.
you can 'mount' a vfat-partition ( = if its not ntfs or fat32) partition
under linux, and access it just like any other partition.
mkdir /winpart creates the mount point
mount /dev/hda1 /winpart mounts the first partition on your first
eide-hd on the first controller to this directory.
read man mount
that is, if fat-support is in your kernel/modules, and your
win-partition is fat16.
ntfs is at least read-supported,write was alpha-stadium.
fat32 i do not know.
