A slightly interesting alternative to the raw access to proc info that has
been suggested is "infobash" from http://rebelhomicide.demon.nl/scripts/.
It's a shell script (comes installed on Kanotix and now on Knoppix also I
believe) which produces output like:
CPU[Mobile Intel Pentium 4 - M clocked at 1196.519 Mhz] Kernel[Linux
2.6.11-kanotix-11 i686] Up[-9days-] Mem[-749.008/756.668MB-]
HDD[-40GB(82%used)-] Procs[-89-] Client[Shell]
or with "infobash -v" or "infobash -v2" you can get even more:
Host/Kernel/OS "Kanotix" running Linux 2.6.11-kanotix-11 i686 [ KANOTIX
CPU Info Mobile Intel Pentium 4 - M clocked at [1196.519 Mhz] 2369.12

With the final beauty that it works well with irc clients (so you can do e.g.
"/exec -o infobash" to put the output to an irc channel).
Now I'm not sure how well this script works across all distros, but I do know
that it's author is always happy to hear about new ways people have found to
Perhaps this is of use to someone.
