[GRLUG] drivers

I installed a copy of Linux Mint on an
Acer Laptop last night, hoping it would
solve some display issues.  The hardware
on the Acer 5000 does not seem to be
particularly well supported.

Anyway, at one point during the installation
it said something like "new drivers available
to support your hardware."  I did not have
the network cable plugged in, and the
message went away.

Now,  any suggestions about how I can go
about getting those updates post installation?
i.e., is there a standard way of updating drivers
for a machine?  Is that just part of something
like Synaptic, or is there another, more direct
