Lspci is part of the pciutils package. It might not be installed. To find out, run:

# rpm -qa | grep pciutils

If no package is listed, install pciutils with:

# urpmi pciutils

If you want to use the graphical tools, you can. Just go into mandrake control center>software management>install. Type pciutils in the search filed and the package should be listed. Tick on the package and hit the install button. The software management section of mcc is just a graphical front end for urpmi. I just find it easier to run it from the command line. Note you must be root to run urpmi so do:

$ su
<enter root password>
# urpmi pciutils

You'll be prompted to load the proper install cd.

You can download the pciutils rpm for mdk10 here:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html

Once downloaded, just click on the rpm in konqueror. You'll be prompted for your root password, after which the rpm should install.

You can configure your urpmi to have more sources. Go to http://www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi and follow the steps

... I have Mandrake 10.1 installed, and when i run urpmi for the pciutils package, it reports Everything already installed. But, when i use scanModem (Linmodems.org), it reports the package is not there
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.
