How do I know which driver I'm using with the LiveCD?

I have a Logitech EX 110 cordless keyboard and mouse combo, which works when I boot my Gentoo Linux LiveCD, but not with the system on my hard drive. Is it possible to find out what (kernel?) driver the LiveCD is using, so I can enable that in my own kernel? lsusb seem to give me no useful information, and neither does dmesg.
