Open a terminal:
Code:
# for OS release information
cat /etc/SuSE-release

# for kernel version
uname -r

Just for completeness, most modern distributions have a file /etc/os-release which contains version information and other useful things.
For example, on Slackware 14 it looks like this:
Code:
NAME=Slackware
VERSION="14.0"
ID=slackware
VERSION_ID=14.0
PRETTY_NAME="Slackware 14.0"
ANSI_COLOR="0;34"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:slackware:slackware_linux:14.0"
HOME_URL="http://slackware.com/"
SUPPORT_URL="http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/"
