Besides cat /etc/issue, cat /proc/version, and what you have already done, one
command that is rarely mentioned is 'lsb_release -a'.  It is not available
with every distro, and even in this specific case it did not give any better
results on a CentOS 5.2 server.

Unfortunately, that exhausts all of the methods I have ever used in the past,
and apparently I don't have a good answer for you.
