As I can see, there are not many tools for checking out the system inside. So I want to suggest http://www.hwinfo.com/. It's free and powerful. Please add it at the next release. Thanks!

Nice ^^
I thought the DOS version was not freeware, unlike the Windows one, but maybe it changed recently, for the site now does state it is freeware too :]

@Constance: Yes you're right. I thought so, too. But now both versions are freeware. ^^

I've added the DOS HWiNFO 5.50 to my UBCD

system.cfg
Code:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL HWiNFO 5.50
TEXT HELP
 HWiNFO is a *POWERFUL* hardware detection program. It is simple, quick and
 on most systems very efficient. It "tries" to give only important information
 about all the hardware devices in your computer so that you need not look
 inside the PC to see what's there.

LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/images/fdubcd.img.gz
APPEND raw ubcdcmd=hwinfo


system.lst

I placed the program archive into the dosapps folder and used the System menu -- you can also use the Custom folder and menu (might be better actually, in case you ever need to migrate the program to UBCD 5.04, for example)
