Modinfo may help me a little, as I wanted an aid which could give
information/clues on what pkgs not to remove. I will not base pkg
removal decisions on modinfo output alone, as pointed out, the kernel
made up of dynamic modules and forceload (static) modules (well
If anyone knows any good pkg removal techniques I would be grateful
your advice...

Thanks for all the replies, too many to list...

Answer was modinfo..

Original question...

I am looking for a way to display all the drivers loaded by the kernel
in Solaris 8
my thinking is, if there is a list of drivers loaded which reflects
actual hardware attached within my system, 
I can use this list in conjunction with pkgchk -v SUNWabcd.* to
& remove unnecessary driver packages
when minimising my OS'.
Hope you can help.
