Make / Model of Server and Hard Drive Type


I have some RedHat ES Release 3 servers that I don't have physical access to.

I am trying to find the make/model of the server, like Dell PowerEdge 5300. Is there any way I can get this information. Command line only via SSH, no GUI available.

Also, I am trying to find out if the drives are IDE, SATA, or SCSI and whether or not they're in a RAID configuration. Is there any way I can find this information?

Thanks for any help!

You can use dmesg and lspci to get info about the devices.
