    Multiple Drivers One Device


    Hi. I know something about linux modules, how they register with the kernel, how they are loaded dynamically and things like that. But i have been looking for some information without success, maybe i just don't know they right terms, so i'd appreciate any direction or explanation .
    How a driver module knows what device is managing?. in MS we have the registry and things like that. If i have an device X with is corresponding driver and i want to change it, i just install the new one and it would take the place of the old driver?. I want to know how those procedures work. Any info would be highly appreciate. Thanx in advance.

    it would really be useful some help folks. Put it in another way, if i want to change the driver of a device, do i have to uninstall the old driver and after that register the new one?
