Note that early versions of MSinfo do not support all the switches listed above.
MSinfo is typically started from Help,About rather than the command line, if not in the system path, MS info can usually be found in:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo
Note that generation of the text file can take some time, depending on the complexity of the system.
If you have problems getting MSInfo to run, check permissions on the following key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSInfo\
Under the W2K command-line you can run WINMSD /? rather than Msinfo32 /?
