How to get linux H/W information

Now I have a DELL GX270 which has never been intalled with solaris 10.
I want to use X86 jumpstart server to perform the installation on the DELL GX270. But I found I need to confirm the following parameters.


Now, FC6 are installed on the linux box. I wonder whether some methods can track the GX270 system H/W information such as display,pointer and keyboard.

I wish I does not post a wrong forum.

display, pointer, and keyboard are all configured in X so you could look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to see how they are currently set..

xdpyinfo - should return detailed display info

lshw - list hardware should return a detailed list of all hardware in your system,
