is there a list of available device drivers?

I'm considering installing Red Hat v.9 on my emachines desktop computer.
How do I find out whether the Red Hat install disks provide the necessary
device drivers for my modem, CD player, midi... ? Is there a list somewhere
of supported devices?
At the emachines home page, they say that they like Windows XP, and wish you
good luck with device drivers for Linux. I looked at Conexant, maker of the
modem in my emachines, and they seem to have made a limited device driver...
As a trial, I installed Red Had v.7 on an old computer I hadn't gotten
around to throwing away. Even though it could install from the CD player,
once it was installed, it didn't recognize the CD player any more.
