Is there a command in BSD that will show the processor type, motherboard and amount of memory?

hope this would help...

you can get many of such system and h/w related values by passing appropriate flags to getconf

for example


also refer this manual page for a rich set of such flags applicable to hp-ux

I don't know whether this is a command in BSD...

`dmesg` is a pretty universal catch-all for this department. The only exception is if the file that dmesg accesses has been filled with errors and all the good stuff forced out.
