 That would be the kernel source tree.  Grab it from
www.<countrycode>.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.2/linux-2.2.18.tar.bz2, or
install the kernel-source package.  If you aren't going to recompile the
kernel to suit your tastes, there might be a kernel-doc package which just
has linux/Documentation, but not the rest of the source.  If not, then just
get the whole tree.

 A lot of really good docs on getting the kernel to do stuff is in

 If it's PCI,  lspci  will find it (independently of whether any drivers are
loaded for it.  PCI is good, because there is a standard for scanning the
bus and finding config info).  (If you don't have lspci, you look at
the obsolete /proc/pci.  lspci interprets the binary data in the new
/proc/bus/pci interface.)
