Andrei, I already told the OP about modinfo in an earlier post; but
I forgot that "lspci -v" would display driver information. lspcmcia
does too. I assume that lspnp does also, but I don't have access to
a machine that has the pnputils package installed to test that right now.
Thanks for the reminder.
