Thanks.  Unfortunately that link does not appear on my Centos box.  

I will simply file this under "would be thing to have in the future."
Perhaps I just found myself a neat little project.

One way is to crawl the sys file system.  On one of my systems the
driver can be seen by viewing the target in
the /sys/class/net/eth0/driver link.
