All information regarding modules will be in files and subdirectories of /lib/modules/<uname-r>/

Make sure its installed using Brains guidance. You can run lsmod to verify that the module is loaded, if not run modprobe to load the module:

Code:
modprobe moduleName
If it is loaded run modinfo on module and it will give you a rundown:

Code:
modinfo moduleName
