You can look at various time stamps of certain files, like the file /etc/passwd. Each distribution will have various files that are uniquely created or modified at install time.

what linux is installed?

If it's Red Hat related(Fedora,RHEL,CentOS)

You can look in /root and look at the time stamp on anaconda-ks.cfg
