the /proc directory contains the info you need.

view the text files: /proc/meminfo      and      /proc/cpuinfo

also check the command df -h     to see your hard disk info.

There are a number of tools to get the system information, phpsysinfo and cfg2html spring to mind.

A lot of the information you want is in /proc (or is it /sys now)

eg/
cat /proc/meminfo
cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/ide/hda/capacity
cat /proc/ide/hda/model

There are some commandline tools as well;
lspci -v # PCI bus information
free # memory information
hdparm # Disk information
smartctl # more disk information

It really depends what you want, cfg2html and phpsysinfo are quite good.

There is a tool, hwinfo. Depending on your distro, it may already be part of it. Just enter hwinfo from a konsole, or install it using the distro's package manager (if it is included in the distro).
