system properties


Is there a way or command in linux to display the system properties?

I have an old box running red hat 9, but I want to do some upgrades, so I want to know what I am currently running. I would like to know the processor and memory info.

In windows you can open the system properties to get this information, wondering if there was a way to do this in linux?

cat /proc/cpuinfo = tells you cpu info
cat /proc/meminfo = tells you memory info
lspci = tells you hardware that is attached (at least if the kernel recognizes it) on the pci bus
cat /proc/ide/hda/* = tells you info of your first ide hard-drive. There are many files under 'hda' so I put * to show that there isn't just one file.

Let us know if you need to find something specific.

Code:
lspci -v
will give you more info than just lspci (e.g. I/O port, IRQ etc.)
Code:
lsmod
will give you all modules (aka drivers) installed at that moment.
