Hardware Information

I am running (actually it just runs itself since I am not sure how to run it yet! LOL) Mandrake 9.2 and am wondering how I find out what type of hardware my system has. I am looking for some type of listing showing all the components, etc. on my system.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

You can either type 'lspci' or get more verbose information by typing 'cat /proc/pci'.

The /proc directory contains a gazillion interesting little files.

Go to and search for
lshw ....

Or, have a good look through your entire
/proc directory and its files :) (Don't, however,
less/cat the file named kcore :})
