More detail required; what do you mean by 'controller'?

hi
lshw # not a command
lspci # nothing in human form
dmidecode = lots of info, but after skimming through it all several times over i haven't seen any answer(actually shows info about nearly everything but the harddrive).

could you point me in the right direction?

also I've been wondering, and this is a good time to use it,
is how would I create a text file containing the output of this command?

Thanks lutusp.
here is the output from the two.
from my limited knowledge I have searched for ata, ide, and scsi indicating possible harddrive info, but found none of these(even with search using find). I also checked a few areas which looked like they may have had motherboard info and can't seem to find anything related to the hdd anywhere.

Try running "update-pciids" as root, then repeat the lspci command and see if it gives a different output.
