modules loaded when "noprobe" options used during installation


I am intersted in knowing what modules are loaded by default when we use the "noprobe" option during installation.
As far as I know when we pass "noprobe" no drivers are loaded and the installer asks us to manually load the drivers.I have tried this option and was asked for network and storage drivers.
I believe there should be some minimal drivers like keyboard/mouse that should be loaded by default when "noprobe" is used.Am I right ? How can I find the minimal set of modules that are loaded when we use the "noprobe" option.

I know that in Red Hat, when you use the know probe option, it still loads drivers, you just have to manually select your devices. The -noprobe option just turns off the autodetect.

After your noprobe, issue command $lsmod to list all modules loaded.
