Is there a standard directory in Linux where my driver files are stored?

I need to find my drivers for the sound card and graphic card, do you know how to find their paths and if they are stored logically in one directory?

For Redhat derivatives, drivers are found in


You can see the status of the drivers in the kernel by using lsmod.

You can find info on a module by using modinfo which will show you the location.

For example

modinfo cryptd  
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64/kernel/crypto/cryptd.ko
description:    Software async crypto daemon
license:        GPL
srcversion:     8AB98AD1F94057A296739AB
vermagic:       2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64 SMP mod_unload modversions
