Summary

Understanding a few critical system components can help you get the most out of your computer. Knowing about CPUs can help you select the right one when it's time to buy a new computer, and it can also help you tune Linux to get the most from the CPU you've got. The video hardware can also greatly influence your perception of the utility of a computer. Although sound cards aren't truly critical components on most systems, they do connect directly to the motherboard and can be tricky to configure in Linux. In all of these cases and in others, knowing how to identify hardware and install drivers is important when troubleshooting or upgrading hardware. One tool that can be useful in these tasks is the /procfilesystem. Although separate programs often mediate access to /proc, you can deal with it directly if you prefer. In fact, doing so is sometimes the best way to get the information that you need.
