It is just a single installer package like any other driver that is available at your mobo manufacturer's site. Just download the driver and install it.

What they come with can vary from mobo to mobo. But most of hte time it is stuff for USB devices, onboard sound and onboard network. If you have onboard GFX then it would include some info with that as well.

Ok so go to the manufacturer's site and download the drivers for my motherboard, then move them onto a USB and install them on my other computer?

Ok got it. But my motherboard is this Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP43D2A7 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards and the only drivers they have on the website is for this motherboard BIOSTAR
Would the drivers work? I think they are the same?

BIOSTAR

Those should be the drivers you are looking for. The very first driver listed is the Chipset.

what operating system are you using? im using 64 bit server 08 (vista) and to get my lynksys card to work in my media rig i had to use hacked drivers. there aren't a lot of wireless pci cards that will run in 64 bit environment.
