Default Newbie to Linux/Loading Video drivers

Hello all I am brand new to Linux, I just loaded Debian4.0 I belive.
I know nothing of Linux and just wanted to get my video above 1024*768

I have only used Microsoft OS, DOS 3.? up through XP.

The card I have is a Leadtek Winfast A250
I was told it was the same as a GeForce 4 Ti4600

I dont know where I can get a driver, Leadtek doesnt have Linux drivers, but I dont know how to load them in Linux anyway, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks and sorry, I know newbies always suck.
