lspci and lsusb not in path

Bug Description

I just wanted to let you know that auto-ndis won't run in fedora 9.  You
aren't able to run lsusb and lspci as commands, it needs to be run
as /sbin/lsusb or /sbin/lspci.  I wrote a quick hack to have it run on
my buddy's fedora machine.  I'm far from a linux expert, I'm not sure if
lsusb is commonly located in /sbin/ in most distros, so I'm working on
something to get the file path even if it isnt in /sbin.  It'll take me
a day or 2 to get the good patch to you, since I don't know any python.

(I changed code on lines 83, 399 and 405)

Cheers and keep up the good work,

will have autondis look in various places in case it doesnt find it in the path.
Note: gentoo stores it in /usr/sbin, fedora apparently in /sbin...
