Hi,

You can use either:
Code:
cat /etc/redhat-release
or for more info:
Code:
lsb_release -a
Regards

That's right, you're using RHEL 5.0, unless /etc/redhat-released was changed somehow. Take a look also at /etc/issue or /etc/issue.net, if you suspect this is not the correct version.

Cheers

If you want to update your RHEL to newer versions, but not to pay for it, please look at CentOS .
