To check one or a few PC's hardware for Y2K is mostly a simple task and you'll find many free Y2K checkers (or Shareware) for your personal download with nearly any search-engine. One of the best Y2K-checkers we found boots it's own OS and keeps it's "hands-of" the System, Hard-disk, FAT, and other critical parts of your system. See our 1A_Y2K-Check .
Auditing a network ( pc-landscape) for Y2K get real complex, if you have an installation with multiple servers in different segments with different network OS, some server-less segments and maybe 10.000 stations with mixed hardware and operating systems. Please see the lanauditor product area for our Network Inventory Solutions lanauditor and ClickNet. Only the knowledge of all used software will give you the possibility to cross-check this information with a Y2K-software database. You'll find the links for downloading your Evaluation Copy on these pages.
The Ziff-Davis supersite that chronicles all the Y2K questions and concerns with balanced, informative, entertaining stories, commentary, and resources has some good free downloads.
Network Administrators maybe check the Novell and Microsoft Y2K Tools before reading the Microsoft article about y2k-bios.
A multilingual source (incl. major links) for international Y2K-aspects is the Cassandra project. See the "latest y2k-information" at www.y2ktoday.
