Question How to determine device driver versions in RHEL 4 Update 4?

I'm running Red Hat AS 4 Update 4. I've got a 2-channel Emulex fibre channel HBA installed in the server. I'm using the Emulex drivers that come bundled with the OS. What is the command & syntax I can use to find out the version of the driver the HBA is using? I've tried using different syntax variations of systool, modprobe, & cat /proc/scsi/lpfc[0|1] with no success. FYI: lpfc is the name of the Emulex driver. 'rpm -qa | grep lpfc' returns no results even though I've confirmed that the driver is loaded:

# lsmod | grep -i lpfc
lpfcdfc 186261 8
lpfc 188481 6 lpfcdfc
scsi_transport_fc 11841 2 lpfcdfc,lpfc
scsi_mod 141457 9 lpfcdfc,sr_mod,usb_storage,sg,st,lpfc,scsi_transport_fc,cciss,sd_mod

Thank you in advance. I greatly appreciate it!

UPDATE: I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum. My apologies. I'll try to move it. Otherwise, I'll repost it in the Hardware forum.
