Information Command on linux

Hi , im a beginner guys, so please be kind hehe!.
I have set up a redhat ES server and all looks good an i think it would be cool to print some give of report off giving the basic stuff like partitions, date time, hardware list etc, is there a command that displays all this kinda like the ms systeminfo ? Also does anyone have any experience of installing HP proliant support packs ?

Hardware list:
This is a little more complicated, but:
cat /proc/pci
cat /proc/cpuinfo
(not exactly what you're asking for maybe)
