Where do I find device drivers?

Question

I bought the laptop from a supplier on eBay. They offered for an additional $65 to load it with 98, but I have a full copy of my own 98 so I decided not the pay the extra. It did not come with a CD-ROM so I bought a backpack drive that hooks to the parallel port. I did not realize that the divers do not come with it and that unlike a desk top it is more complicated to set up a laptop. How can I get the proper drivers for it. Thanks
