infact it does it with everything you need to install
HHEEELLPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The disk you have is for Windows, Ubuntu is not Windows.

What make and model is the printer?
How does it connect to the system?
What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

Connects via USB and wifi but need the set-up so I can connect

What make and model is the printer?

Can you please give the output of:
lsb_release -a; uname -a

Can you please answer ALL questions rather than just one, it speeds things up lots

Seems you need to read some about Ubuntu...

http://ubuntu-manual.org/

Ubuntu is not Windows...

Can you help with this problem?
