How do you find Driver & Firmware information?

I'm running a Rhel 5.1 machine and i'm trying to find driver and firmware information for a HBA(Host Bus Adapter)? Furthermore, how do you find driver and firmware information for a device connected to the HBA? Up to this point, I have been using >cat /proc/scsi/scsi to find the firmware information for a device(backup storage device) but it is not useful for finding any information on the HBA or the driver information for the device. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
