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?

It produces an output like HPUX's ioscan with the short option.  I
have to alias that here at work to the ioscan on the Linux machines so
the HPUX admins don't get confused.  Also if anyone has a ton of HPUX
experience they are currently hiring a senior HPUX/Linux sys admin
(yeah shameless plug).

Output looks like such:
