Hi guys

I'm still scratching my head to figure out how hardware autodetection 
works, specifically for hard drive controllers.

My basic formula is use lspci.

Here is an example:

00:10.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X 
Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 01)

I know the mptscsih module works for the above device.
However, if I didn't just happen to know I wouldn't have a clue what 
module to load for driver support.

Is there a simple automated way, eg. a script that can figure out what 
driver is bested suited to the controller?

Thanks guys

I know if anyone knows it will be a genius from this list!
