Believe me, if I knew a bit more about Linux, then I might do just that. Since I dont know too much, perhaps you could write up something?

Can this everest or other software tell you what kind of hard drive connections are in your computer? Or do I have to open the case to find out? the device manager said it was an IDE/ATA thing for hard drives... that makes no sense to me, but I am not the techhie in the house.

You can also use a free tool called Belarc Advisor which you can download at
It tells you just about everything about your computer hardware including software installed on your system and service packs that are installed.
