Moved: More suitable in our Redhat forum.

Check the file usually named redhat-version in /etc or something along those lines.

In a terminal window type
cd /etc
enter
cat redhat-release
enter


[twilli@localhost twilli]$ cd /etc
[twilli@localhost etc]$ cat redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
[twilli@localhost etc]$
