Determining motherboard type?

im a newbie at most of this...

im trying to install Redhat 8 on a server system but have no idea how the motherboard is set up and would like to find a manual on it. most of the motherboard is tucked away and i'd rather not rip the machine up to figure this out. im kinda hoping there is a utility i can run that will tell me the mb manufacturer / model / etc. barring that...

everything (except the cpu's and drives) are down on the mb. i have the following info (from scanpci, logs, etc).

dual pentium III 1266 Mhz stepping 0
VIA VT 82C586 chipset
ATI mach64
Promise (ATA RAID ctrlr?)
dual Intel Ethernet Pro 100

so many Q... so little time.

Nevermind! a visit to and a bit of pdf browsing on the manufacturers site yielded a close enough approximation.
