What I am looking for is a tool/utility to probe and report the hardware - cpu, memory, drives, controllers, etc. A "dump to file" is usable as I can filter the noise (better too much than too little information at data collection!). Something in a bootable CD flavor?

Definitely install lshw if you don't have it installed already.  With
no switches, it will give you more than enough information, and you
can even have it output in html or xml.  Read the manpage because
there's also a few other useful switches.
