Easier:
"I run Ubuntu 10.4".
"I run kernel 2.6.32."
One of these is usually already included in the first post or IRC message
from the user.

Separate driver versions are only needed on platforms where drivers are
not distributed by the operating system distributor, or driver source code
is not released within kernel source code.
