the version number of the kernel is incremented when significant changes have been made to it such as adding support for various devices I can't tell you the latest kernel because this changes very fast go to www.linux .com to find out.

Another point is that if the second decimal is odd, then the version is a development version
Currently the kernel is at 2.3.x, while the stable release is at 2.2.y. You don't want to go for the 2.3.x series unless your hardware is not supported, or you want to live on the bleeding edge, or you are doing kernel development

If you're using suse linux it is shown at the top of the login prompt e.g
welcome to suse linux kernel 2.2.7 (tty1)
also read the cover of the cd where you ot your linux from. If you used ftp the site should have stated what kernel you were getting.
these are the easiest ways there are other ways you like commands but I'll leave this to you it is muc more fun to discover things yourself in linux than being told.
