Okay, uname -a worked and returned Linux INPSEKIIMNAS01 2.6.32.12 #1613 Fri Apr 8 10:10:47 CST 2011 ppc GNU/Linux. Now how do I determine what distribution this is? Is there a plain vanilla Linux?

Have a look if you find a file /etc/issue. If it is there it should contain the information you want.
