Sorry for the delay - I've been on the road for 2 days.
Open a terminal and login as root and issue "lspci"
without the quotes. That means list pci devices. I don't
know anything about VM ware, just a little about Linux.
If you are running the KDE desktop, there should be an
icon on your desktop that looks something like a shell
over a computer monitor. Other desktops should have
something similar. Click on it to "open a terminal." If
that doesn't work, try using Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get a virtual
terminal, login as root, issue "lspci" and after you're
finished you can use Ctrl+Alt+F7 to leave the virtual
terminal and return to the X server.
Whenever you get the lspci output, just hightlight it all
with your left mouse button, then paste it by clicking the
wheel button. That's a nice feature of Linux, IMNSHO.
If you can't do that, you can always highlight it with the
left mouse button, then use Ctrl+C to copy it and then
Ctrl+V to paste it here. Rather boring, with extra steps
if you ask me, but then, who did?
