What command to show mandrake version?

I'm looking for a command similar to kernelversion to show me which version of Mandrake I have installed. I know it's 9.x, but I don't know what sub-version I'm running and I need to know. Thanks in advance.

look for a file in your /etc directory called mandrake-version or (sounds silly, but...) redhat-version. You can usually just type
cat /etc/*-version
and it'll do the trick.
