Information about the Hard drive and list all PCI devices

$ hdparm /dev/hda

                   multcount    = 16 (on)
                   IO_support   =  0 (default 16-bit)
                   unmaskirq    =  0 (off)
                   using_dma    =  1 (on)
                   keepsettings =  0 (off)
                   readonly     =  0 (off)
                   readahead    = 256 (on)
                   geometry     = 16383/255/63, sectors = 234375000, start = 0

or for SCSI - $ hdparm -i /dev/sda

How fast is your drive? - $ hdparm -tT /dev/hda

                Timing buffer-cache reads:   128 MB in  0.41 seconds =315.32 MB/sec
                Timing buffered disk reads:  64 MB in  1.19 seconds = 53.65 MB/sec

Need to find your device?

$ mount
$ cat /proc/partitions
$ dmesg | egrep '^(s|h)d'

                      hda: IC35L120AVV207-1, ATA DISK drive
                      hdc: Lite-On LTN486S 48x Max, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
                      hda: max request size: 1024KiB
                      hda: 234375000 sectors (120000 MB) w/7965KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63, UDMA(100)

If you want to turn on dma - $ hdparm -d1 /dev/hda

                   setting using_dma to 1 (on)
                   using_dma    =  1 (on)

List all PCI devices - $ lspci -v

         00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Xpress 200 Host Bridge (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device d600
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64
        Memory at (64-bit, non-prefetchable)
        Kernel modules: ati-agp 

              ... lots more ...

           Note, there is also lspci -vv for even more information.
