In DOS, the command
dir /s /ah will recurse through every subdirectory and show all files with the "hidden" attribute.
What is the linux equivalent?

I usually use
ls -lAR which recurses through a directory tree, showing file attributes and any 'hidden' files (commonly called 'dot files' because they start with a dot ('.'). You could also replace the 'A' with 'a' to show the current and parent directory in each, but except for the top-level directory, all are shown in the parent's directory.
