Description of problem:
I'm adding this just because I thought I might give you this little
utility I wrote quite a few years ago (with minor updates later.)
It's called "hinv", as in "hardware inventory", and is just a very
simple script, but may still be quite useful. It offers a quick way to
get an overview of the hardware installed on the system - quicker than
inspecting log files or consulting the /proc filesystem directly (or
that's the idea, anyway.) It was inspired by the command of the same
name on SGI systems.

The actual script
the value of an 'all in one' script like this vs the long term maintainence
burden doesn't really seem worth it. Its rare that we need to know everything
about a users system when we get bug reports, usually we can ask for something
specific for which we have existing tools (lspci, x86info etc).
forgot to mention -- you might want to try the fedora-extras folks at fedora.us,
maybe they'll find it an interesting addition.
