  1. You'll most likely have to compile the driver yourself (just my guess however as it's compressed).

    Open the terminal, cd to the directory where the *.tar.gz is saved.
    "tar -xvzf driver-x86_32-4.4.0.tar.gz" without the quotes will un-tar the archive

    If you do need to compile from source, you'll need to:

    "cd driver-x86_32-4.4.0"
    "./configure"
    "make"
    "make install"

    Hopefully that will do the trick for you.
