	On the contrary! Many thanks! 

	When in doubt, assume I *have* missed something; as the Boomers 
retire and escape the Gates of Hell, there will be accelerating numbers 
of people needing the same things -- even when I do know or have seen, as 
was not the case here. You're a great help!

	No, in fact I hadn't. I certainly wondered why the display was so 
sparse, but a horizontal tree is new to me (at least if it's an 
electronic tree).

	So I tried lshw, lshw-gui, and lshw-gui &; but no combination of 
left clicks, right clicks, and hitting enter with either of the latter 
two got me any more than a tiny yellow box saying "This pane 
displays .... <whatever>" (I have all machines set to single-click, in 
case that matters.) And I get that much (more than I had before) just by 
hovering the cursor.
