I have a PC with a an old AMD Sempron 3000+ processor on which I wanna query the motherboard aka mainboard model number to check which kind of RAM to buy for it.

How do I do this in Ubuntu 11.10?

Run sudo lshw, that should give you back all the info you need.

If you're looking for a GUI solution, try the package 'hardinfo'
