    if it is an old iShock or iShock2, they have drivers up on their webpage (at least until very recently).

    That being said, most games will recognize a usb gamepad as at least a generic gamepad. You might not get all the special buttons, but it will still function essentially as a gamepad.

    If it's just a generic gamepad with sticks and buttons, I don't believe you'll need any actual drivers.
