I'm confused. How can I tell which version of Mandrake I have?


Whats up everyone. How can I tell which version of Mandrake I have? I am asking this because I want to install Mandrake 10.0 Official if I infact have Community installed. I know your probably like this guy is an idiot but wait, listen. I downloaded the mandrake discs about 2 weeks ago and the downloaded iso's are named Mandrake_10.0_Official.iso. So I naturally thought that the distro I was installing was Mandrake 10.0 Official, not community. Okay, so when I go to log off to restart the comp or whatever, I see something on the screen go by that says Mandrake 10.0 Community. I was like, WTF!?!? So now, I am getting ready to reinstall winXP but I wanna download and burn the 10.0 official distro first if I in fact have Mandrake 10.0 Community Edition installed. Please guys, any help is greatly appreciated.

Whoops! Skipped over this on first search, I found it, I am running Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community. Now I have to download the Official release before I do my reinstalling. This is going to take at least 2 days...

ls /etc/*release*
ls /etc/*version*

This will give you a file that contains the version.
cat file_that_ls_found
