Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

alright so i found cat /proc/version pretty muhc shows it for RHEL, tho for Centos it says RHEL too (but with centos mail so it is obvious its centos however no idea if 3.4 or what) maybe it just takes knowledge of what each distributions output here ?

... hum.. did you read my post? there is no standard command to find which distro you are running...
but, under /etc you can find some files with information...
a definitive solution is writing a script to check few different files..
