Detected Hardware

How can I list detected hardware. I just installed a wireless network card and just trying to figure out whether my box has actually detected it.

If it's a PCI device (which it probably is), then you can use the lspci command.

[edited to add]

You should also be able to find it in the output of dmesg, but lspci is probably easier to understand.

Ripper, that did the trick. Thanks at least I know the device is physically detected.
