Very important!

Also, one can use the whereis command to find where a command is:

    $ whereis lspci
    lspci: /sbin/lspci /usr/share/man/man8/lspci.8.gz

Things in sbin are mostly for root's use, but some of them work even when
not root, and lspci seems to be one of them.  You can sometimes find the
command you want with apropos:

    $ apropos lspci
    lspci                (8)  - list all PCI devices

(whatis lspci would have done the same thing in this case, but apropos pci
would have been useful.)  And also try man lspci.  These commands help one
get past that "helpless" feeling when using Linux.

Searching the list archive does not work (though they're working on that);
until then here's a list mirror to search:

or use Google, but Google isn't as current:
