"lspci" is something you can type at the command prompt and gives you a nice little output of all things pci currently recognized by your Linux kernel.

As for nvida: there's a thread somewhere on this forum that deals specifically with that. Perhaps do a search?

the config file was a generic file, so it should work on all video cards.

you said you tried Knoppix and everything worked?
im assuming the XF86Config file is in /etc/X11
copy it somewhere or upload it on the net. and then boot back into your system on your hd, and copy that file into /etc/X11

I tried that before with a file from Mandrake, and it didn't work (the files differ slightly from distro to distro).
