uname -a
lspci -v
cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc anything
top
ps aux

Uh, I know I'm missing a few, but are any of those what you are looking for?

dmesg
less /var/log/messages




Cool

it was the cat /proc/cpuinfo i was looking for. but the top and dmesg were great to find out about also. I must learn more about bash and the command line soon.

thank you,
