netcard info on RHEL ?


Hello ! Not wanting to use GUIs, I am trying to find a command line command to get information about my network adapters. On OpenSuse 11.1, I can issue: hwinfo --netcard | grep " Device" and I get :
Device: pci 0x109a "82573L Gigabit Ethernet Controller"
Device File: eth3
Device: pci 0x4227 "PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection"
Device: pci 0x4362 "88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller"
Device File: eth2

(I believe the wireless card is turned off)

I would like to get the same information from RHEL 5.3 . I have looked at dmidecode and lspci. Can anyone suggest a bottom line command to get this info ?
thanks,

Yeah, hwinfo is a handy tool. You might try lshw and ipmitool, and see if that works for you.
