Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't forget lsusb, which is the usb equivalent to lspci. cat /proc/scsi/scsi will show scsi devices (e.g. flash drives). For older systems, if you have any PNP devices (ISA?) then lspnp will show those.
I opened a terminal session under FC3 to try out these commands. In each case, I got an error message, "bash: hal-device: command not found", "bash: lspci: command not found". Becoming superuser ("su") did not help. How do you issue these commands?
The command "cat /proc/pci" worked, but did not give a specific hardware listing--at least not that I can read and make any sense of.
I opened a terminal session under FC3 to try out these commands.
I don't know about FC3. I believe hal was introduced in FC4. In FC5 the path for theses commands and their packages are listed below for your convenience. May be you figure out a similar package for FC3.
I'd remembered a hal-something being listed during the FC3 installation, but maybe this was an earlier version or something else entirely. Regardless, when I run "which" I get much different output than what you got, so I guess these commands aren't available in FC3.
