I guess you are right. I tried today to install as a root using
rpm, and I got the reply you say: "database doesn't exist". Is
alien in the distribution of Debian or should I grab it apart? I

Any suggestions, then? I have been able to get the drivers in a .tar.gz

Guess I'll have to find what to do with them. Thanks.

There's no harm in trying alien; if it doesn't work, you can fall back to using the tarball'ed version.

apt-get install alien
alien --to-deb foo.rpm
dpkg -i foo.deb
