Identifying Linux hardware

We would love to hear about a
tool for linux that would run off
a floppy like tomsrtbt, which
identifies every bit of hardware,
lets us know model, dma, irq,
address, etc so we can get linux
to operate it. For example, we
have several Dell Latitude
Xi-CD Laptops with ESS sound.
Soundcfg can't find it but
windoze does. Since we load all
computers as single boot
systems, we can't take the old
silly way of messydos
initialisation." More at LinuxFormat.
