A few commands that may reveal stuff that's installed. These may be slightly different depending on what hardware you have installed. You can get the idea though - snoop around in /proc. Don't worry that the "files" under /proc appear to be zero-length. They're not real files (they're memory, actually).
cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/meminfo
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
cat /proc/ide/hda/model
cat /proc/ide/hdb/model
cat /proc/partitions
cat /proc/asound/cards
cat /proc/version
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
