PCI Card recognized

I installed PCI Card HP SC44Ge - SAS1068E
on my linux CentOS 5.4

is there a way to find out if the PCI is properly installed and recognized by linux.

lspci is enough?
just to add that PCI card is connected to a tape...

also how can I find out driver and firmware version?

thanks a lot

In the /lib part of the directories, there should be a set of sub-directories dealing with the kernel. Keep this in mind.
Use apropos to see if a driver already exists.
You can import firmware from any distribution and place it in the proper path.
Also, look through the package manager for any programs related.
