Under Linux, you can use 'uname -a'.
It will show you a string containing the platform and verson of Linux you're using.
You can use it in a script too,  parsing the string to use just the OS data or the Hard data to whatever you need :)
In windows you can go to start run and type msinfo32.

You should see all the stats about your serve in the window that appears.
