    Default Unix Newbie Question

    This is a quick question, but how do you check the system resources on
    a SCO Unix box. Its SCO Openserver 5.0.5, and I basically just want to
    check the following items:

    Total RAM
    Available RAM
    CPU speed
    CPU load
    Total/Free/Used disk space

    I have been looking on the internet for some tutorials, but I cant
    seem to find any that help. I inherited this machine with my job
    title, but unfortunately Im a "Windows Child" and am having a hard
    time in a Unix environment.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Be sure to read through the man pages for the above commands to get a
    handle on the various options. (man <commandname>).
