--- these in combination would be roughly the same sort of central info center etc.
"System-config-control provides an organized and centralized interface to all of
Fedora's configuration utilities. It also hooks into firstboot, allowing these
tools to be run after initial installation."
"hwbrowser :A browser for your current hardware configuration"
These are not installed by default in FC5 [AFAIK], so just use yum to install them. If they are not what you are looking for then you can use yum to remove them.
You might also want to have a look at /System/Administration/System Monitor
, it will display information in gui about discs and memory etc. Or yoy can open a terminal and type top
enter and have a look at the information provided.
