Hi,

I'm trying to build kernel without module support. But I don't
know how to find drivers I need.

i did,
 * lsmod in another distribution (debian lenny) to find loaded modules
 * lspci to find devices connect to my PC

But Device Drivers (kernel menuconfig) has a lot of drivers I don't
know such as I2C support, something in Serial ATA and Parallel ATA
drivers, etc.

So, how can I find which kernel driver I need?

Thanks,
Kuangyu Jing
