Command to display IRQ, DMA, etc?

Is there a command in which I can find out the basic config of my hardware?
I finally figured out how to install the module for my modem, but I think I need to use a parameter to tell it what IRQ, UART, etc is located. It still
won't recognize the modem.


Linux 8.0
IBM THinkpad 600E
Thinkpad DSP modem (software, but IBM released a driver)

cat /proc/irq
cat /proc/dma

if you do a

ls /proc

you will see many different files you can get system information from.
