I dont have lspci on the computer, but I do have LSHW: (Because of lengthy typing, I will post what I believe is relevant, as well as the categories of everything else.) *-cpu *-cache:0 *-cache:1 *-memory:0 *-memory:1 *-memory:2 *-memory:3 *-memory:4 *-pci *-multimedia *-display *-pcmcia description: CardBus Bridge product: RL5c475 vendor: Ricoh Co Ltd physical id: 3 bus info: pci@00:03.0 version: 80 clock: 33MHz capabilities: pcmcia bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=yenta_cardbus resources: Very long, I will provide upon request. *-isa description: ISA bridge product: 82440MX ISA Bridge vendor: Intel corp. physical id: 7 bus info: pci@00:07.0 version: 01 clock: 33MHz capabilities: isa bus_master *-ide description: IDE interface product: 82440MX EIDE Controller vendor: Intel Corp. physical id: 7.1 bus info: pci@00:07.1 version: 00 clock: 33MHz capabilities: ide bus_master configuration: driver=uhci_hcd resources: ioport:fcc0-fcdfr irq:10 *-bridge description: Bridge product: 8240MX Power Management Controller vendor: Intel Corp. physical id: 7.3 bus info: pci@00:07.3 version: 00 clock: 33 MHz lsmod shows no modules loaded (at startup)
