Hardware Information

I'm sure the answer to this is very simple and obvious.

How do I find out exactly what model graphics chip is in my PC? I know it is SiS, but have no idea what model it is.

How do I find this out?! I need it to get my XServer running. (So need to find it out from the command line).

Type lspci at the command line. This will list you pci hardware.

Add -v or -vv to lspci for more verbosity. Also cat /proc/pci.
