by installing it ,usually you get the added device on hardware manager
but i'm pretty sure it needs to be installed on the OS before you can look in the settings

Greetings, mutage!
  With the device installed, go to Start > Run and type msinfo32 and click ok.

Go to Hardware Resources to see IRQ and I/O settings

Best wishes, war1

mutage,
If you're wanting to check what its set for before installing, you'll have to use the manufacturer's utilities for this.  For example, most 3COM PCMCIA NIC cards (3c589D, etc) can be configured using a 3c589.exe (I believe that's the name, its been a while since I had to suffer with one of those) to manually set IRQ and I/O addresses.  PCMCIA is at heart an extension of ISA, so its not terribly plug n play friendly as a general rule.
