PS: Most people who post here need help. Don't use "help me" as a title (people might ignore your question).

In some flavors of Linux you might have to be root/su to use this... In Simply Mepis you don't.

Information about your kernel
uname -mrs
uname -a
cat /proc/version

Here is a list of extremely useful commands...

I hope that this helps...
