There are three ways to figure out which Linux distribution you are using.

Using /proc/version
In the terminal type

cat /proc/version

The output should be like

Linux version 2.6.18-128.1.1.el5.530g0000 (root@kalamata) (gcc version 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)) #1 SMP Tue Mar 17 21:49:24 EDT 2009

Using /etc/issue or /etc/redhat-release (if you are using an RedHat distribution)
This method gives the most appropriate answer

cat /etc/issue

cat /etc/redhat-release

The output should be like

CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
Kernel \r on an \m
