HDT - Hardware Detection Tool

What is HDT?

HDT (stands for Hardware Detection Tool) is a Syslinux com32 module that displays low-level information for any x86 compatible system. It provides both a command line interface and a semi-graphical menu mode for browsing.

You can try HDT via  http://boot.kernel.org/: download the BKO floppy image  here and boot it via qemu: qemu -fda gpxe.dsk. When the menu appears, select HDT from the list.
