Most of my systems are debian, and I hadn't heard of lshw until I saw
it mentioned here.  I had used lsusb, lspci, ... to get similar
information.  I logged into one of my systems, and tried lshw, and it
wasn't found, but just did a "sudo apt-get install lshw" installed it,
and I must say, it looks like a handy tool!  You might try something
