What command can tell me what distribution of debian I have installed?

I'm a total n00bie who's trying to mount my ntsf xp hard disc so I can read from it
using my debian hard disc. I figured a good starting point would be to know what
distribution of debian I have, but I can't seem to find out. Is there a command line that
can tell me this?

I was able to successfully mount my xp ntsf hard drive. The main reason I wanted to
do this was so I could use xmms to listen/view my movies/music. But everytime I try to
run a movie or song in xmms, it crashes. If anyone has a clue where to start I'd
appreciate it. Thanx

start xmms from a terminal window. The command is
maybe it will give you some error messages that can point you in the right direction.
