How can i find out what module my NIC is using?

Gentoo install, at step 21.1. It asks me to step up any important modules to load at bootup and suggests the NIC module be one of those.

This is noob i'm sure, but how do i find out which module my card is currently using? i've been accessing the gentoo site for updates and such, so i know it's working somehow. SuSE installer couldn't find a card on this system at all.

As i recall, it's a SMC 1244TX.

lsmod tells you the modules that are loaded. you should be able to see it there.
