GUI tool for hardware information


I am looking for a GUI tool that will give me detailed information of my hardware setup. I am running Ubuntu 9.04.

I saw that one but it seems I have to launch it from the command line. I am looking for something that will appear in System under my Applications menu.

Launching it from the command line shouldn't be a problem. Once it's launched it appears as a GUI, with full information about your system. Just type in the terminal: hardinfo, then hit Enter. Easy.
