How to check OS version


How can I check the OS version of RedHat?

Like in Windows, I can find that out from "winver" command and Systems from Control Panel.

I am looking for a way to show the version that will say like RedHat Linux Enterprise version x and release x.

Thanks very much.

Cool

Thanks to very one.

I found the OS version finally. I used

cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 6)

cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.21-37.ELsmp (bhcompile@dolly.build.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-53)) #1 SMP Wed Sep 7 13:32:18 EDT 2005

Guys thank again.

Thanks for the post, this helped me by using the cat /proc/version command.
