The only difference between motherboard drivers and other drivers (sound, graphics, etc.) is the hardware they are programmed for. The motherboard drivers run the hardware built into the motherboard (chipset, onboard LAN, onboard sound, etc) and the other drivers run your discrete sound card, your discrete graphics, your PCI/PCI-e add-on cards, etc.
