Nothing on your motherboard is going to be linux specific drivers. The kernel should recognize everthing. Now, if you mean drivers for stuff like your graphics card and sound, that is pretty easy indeed! Most drivers will install automatically as the newest versions of linux are pretty friendly.. Things like Nvidia drivers are proprietary, and you have to install them yourself. They do use a generic one that will display without 3d though until you get that done. Most things like mouse/keyboards/soundcards etc are very easily installed through a standard installation automatically..

As for any documentation involving linux..The distrubution you choose (hint hint try ubuntu ) should have a website, and that website should have a forum. The forums are the place where you will get great answers to your questions, and possibly even IRC channels if posting online isn't fast enough for you!

Hope that helps!
