Is command to view system specs?


I'm running the Ubuntu 7.10 live cd right now on a computer that I was able to get from my dad's work. I would like to be able to check mainly what video card it has. If anyone can help me out that me great.

You can try several commands. lspci, scanpci and lshw are good starting points.
