    uname -a

    shows something like

    Linux xxxxx 2.6.24.4-xxxx.i386 #3 SMP Fri Apr 18 15:57:58 MSD 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    where 2.6.24.4-xxxx.i386 is your version.

    I can tell you are on CentOS and that is the latest kernel for it. You can check on centos.org for more info, but I know that`s the latest kernel.

    You are correct, I am on Centos.

    I've been on centos.org a bit lately.. as stupid as it sounds I cannot figure out how to see the latest version of centos! (or any security patches, for that matter).

    Whereabouts do I look on there for the kernal info?
    The FAQ seems to be written for people that are more familiar with the OS than I.
