On Linux OS there are no drivers in the way they are on windows.
Generally you don't have to install additionally drivers.
But perhaps it can be possible that you have to install a propritary graphics driver like the nvidia driver to user 3d effects or a driver for your wifi card. Then you have two ways to install them.
First, you use yur package management system from your distribution or you download the driver from the vendor and install / or compile and build it on the way it is describe in the read me file or in the wiki of your distribution.
If you want to know, wich driver you have to install additionally, please look in the HCL (hardware compatibility list) of your distribution (for example the HCL for ubuntu http://www.ubuntuhcl.org/).
There are several different devices in Linux. Linux manages the machine’s hardware in a simple and efficient manner, offering the user a simple and uniform programming interface. Since Linux follows the UNIX model, and in UNIX everything is a file, users talk with device drivers through device files.
