How to see what hardware is in your computer with Xubuntu

How can you check what hardware is in your computer with Xubuntu?

I don't know much about the texture section of Xubuntu. I've worked with a server Linux before but not to say that I know everything about it. I know how I can see my CPU specs but don't know how to check the rest.

The purpose of it is that I can download my drivers for linux for all my hardware. It are crappy computers and I am in a Domain so I can't check it with Everest Home Edition .. Then I have to get the bisuness edition but don't want to pay for it.

I don't know whether Xubuntu has a GUI to show that kind of information but you can always use the terminal; sudo lshw and sudo lspci -v should give you plenty of information.
