If you don't have root access, you could use one of the linux live CDs
(e.g., knoppix), and that would give you root access to run lspci -vvv,
which will list the information you want. I'm not sure why you would need
root access, though. My ubuntu runs the command fine as a regular user,
and the binary is in /usr/bin.
