Getting System Info from command line

I have been given the task at work to do an inventory of all our machines (DeskTop and Server). Most of our machines are Windows 2003 and XP, but some of the servers are a Linux derivative.

I was wondering what commands I could execute at the command line to get the following info:



Processor (Type and Speed)


The servers are locked down, so I can't just look at them to get the manufacturer and model. The different types of Linux/Unix servers that we have are:

Fedora Core 6

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Some of this is available in /proc. Use cat on /proc/cpuinfo and /proc/meminfo. I'm not sure how to get the manufacturer. Maybe someone else has an idea.
