what command line do I use to determine which drivers are installed and what hardware they are associated with.

unlike a M$ O/S, a Linux O/S has most of it's hardware recognition built into the kernel.
so you can't "list the drivers" in use ..
- the odd exception would be for say, the nVidia video card, which would have a separate driver installed.

from 'control center' click on "additional drivers" to search for any additional, propriety drivers, that may be needed.

- what hardware are you trying to list?.
