My system can't find a driver for a Dell Photo 924 (I downloaded an executable installation app but it bombs). Also it can't seem to find my wireless network printer, a Canon MP560. Thanks for any help...

There's a program called SAMBA, I'm sure one of the nice guys here is making a quick guide right now (: –  yinon Feb 27 '13 at 20:57

There are several online, user maintained databases. Typically they list compatible hardware, but not always. Most of the dirvers are in the kernel and not specific to Ubuntu.
