This is true for rpm packages, but the original post said the drivers were
made and installed ... I assumed that those were not an RPM, but they
could have been.

Another thing that can be done is to install slocate and set the command
updatedb to run in cron, then you can use the command:

locate name_of_file

This is much faster than find, but only if the slocate database is kept
