I don't have a 3548 to test with, but try

show idprom interface gigabitEthernet 0/1

I think equivalent commands to show inventory were very limited in cisco's first gen switches like the 3548 which came out in like 1995 . If you are looking for a gbic serial number then you probably would have to pull the gbic and look .

The "sh inventory" is not supported on the 2900XL/3500XL. It only started on the 2940/2950 running the EA5 IOS. If you want to know the serial number of the GBIC module, there's no other way but to pull it out and read it with a magnifying glass.

Hope this helps.
