Version Determination

How do I determine what my version of the kernel is currently running?  Something similar to the ver command in DOS?

I have been through the 300+ pages of HOWTOs as well as Drx Linux, and can't find it.  I am sure it is there, but I am just not seeing it.


Thanks,
Brett

The command is 'uname -a' .
The -a option gives a large amount of info, but other options give just specific info.  Look at the man page.  Type 'man uname'.
With the -a option, you will see a line like:

Linux Mydomain 2.0.0 #1 Sat Jan 4 07:20:32 EST 1997 i486

Fields:
1  OS type
2  network domain name from /etc/HOSTNAME file
3  version number
4  number of times compiled
5  date compiled
6  hardware type

That't it!
