Both of these need to done as root, I think. <span style="font-style: italic;"><br><br>lspci</span><br>This will give you a printout off all the devices you have. I am pretty sure that the mini PCI card will show up on this list. Lets you know what driver to look for. This can be done in whatever distro you are using.
<br><br><span style="font-style: italic;">lsmod</span> <br>Use this in Ubuntu. This will tell you what modules you have loaded. If the driver is built into the kernel Ubuntu uses this won't help out much. <br><br>Also, here is a wiki that has all kinds of information on how to get linux on a Thinkpad working:
