I am answering assuming redhat is your distro

But it`ll work in a lot

Type
lsmod

To list modules inserted

dmesg

to see what modules have been inserted at startup and any error in module probe


insmod modulename io=value irq=value

Ex: I use rtl8019 card and to insert it I use

insmod ne io=0x280 irq=5

Where ne.o is the driver used for the card


Also get a copy of kernel hackin for newbies .Good one

Cheers
Z

Other commands useful
lspci
lsdev
pnpdump

It does
Not for lsmod and dmesg [its the same in mandrake]. Also insmod works


But lspci is pcidrake

and i dont have an equivalent command for lsdev

But you have a very good tool [i think its drakeconf or drake2conf ] a GUI/dialog tool
for checkin what hardware has been configured

Cheers

Sorry I couldnt get hands on the distro at present.
