Question Backpack CDrewriter

I am new to unix/linux. Tyring to get my cd burner to work. Have downloaded the linux drivers but what do I do from here. I am using Mandrake. I have unzipped the file but that is it. Any sugestions would be much appreciated.

there should have been a readme that came with the drivers- you may have to recompile your kernel (if they are patches). There is plenty of documentation on that on kernel.org. However, if your manufacturer gave you modules (end in a .o), you can try to insmod them. there should be documentation as to which version(s) of the linux kernel are compatible with your drivers though, but try (in the dir):
insmod ./driver-name.o
and see if that works.
