kernel number


After 2 years not using my redhat distro, I can't remember the command to learn the kernel version on my system. I know this is a real beginner question, but I can't find the answer on this site or in a 1000 page book that I have. Apparently, indexers don't think the way I do. Help appreciated. Thanks.

open a terminal/console and issue the command
Code:
uname -r
