compatible hardware detection software?

Is there a quick and easy app in Linux that will basically just post all the hardware on your computer, and tell you which pieces it doesn't have drivers for?

No, not really.

Some distributions include tools to try and help with that sort of thing, but there is nothing that works across the board.
