Is there a single command to list all hardware installed (command line)?
 
There's a command on Solaris (prtconf) which lists all hardware installed on a box. Is there an equivalent command on linux (RedHat ES)?

/sbin/lspci will show all the pci hardware (including usb bridges,agp cards etc)
/sbin/lsusb will show all the usb devices (mice,etc)

dmesg will show you the kernel messages which can show you all the devices the kernel has found (hard disks,cdroms,etc)

There are many programs that gather all the information and output it in a more beautiful way, so you can see all the devices
you have, without running all these commands i mentioned.

Thanks for that - I'll have a play with dmesg.

Any of the more 'fancy' ones command line output?

command to list all hardware installed
 
there is the lshw command. I know it is out there for Debian and RedHat distros (Ubuntu and Fedora). works great especially when you pipe it into a text file.
If not already installed you can do one of these two depending on distro:
Debian / Ubuntu: apt-get install lshw or
RedHat / Fedora: yum install lshw

Hopes this helps.

Try "dmidecode" which works on most unix/linux systems.
Gives a very detailed output which looks quite useful.
