Check Version of Installed Red Hat


Hi all,

Does anyone know how to check the Red Hat Linux version? Usually I will use "uname -a", but this will only shows the hostname and kernal version.

Linux duredhatmy01 2.4.20-8smp #1 SMP Thu Mar 13 17:45:54 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I would like to know the command which shows the Red Hat version as in RH7, RH9, RHEL3, etc.

Anyone who knows, please share with me
Thanks.....
