I need driver dvd-rom drd8120b

Do not need drivers with Windows XP. According to forum circa 2002, Windows XP Pro even supports the drive.
Drive when made was officially supported by:
Linux / Microsoft DOS 3.1 or later / Microsoft Windows 2000 / NT4.0 / Microsoft Windows 3.x/95/98
(No first hand knowledge)

You will need to install the software driver in order to make the burner work with the computer.
Normally the driver can be installed from and included CD or by downloading it from the manufacturers site - BUT there is a problem, Windows 98 drivers are almost NEVER supported with new software anymore. Chances are, you will have to locate a 3rd party site to obtain the needed driver.
If you provide the model number of the drive I MAY be able to locate one for you.

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner

With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.
