I don't understand this output. Is there such a thing as RedHat 3.4???

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.9-42.0.3.EL.wh1smp (root@wdl70144) (gcc
version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-11)) #1 SMP Fri Aug 14
15:48:17 MDT 2009
$

This is a very strange machine. It doesn't have a "locate" command anywhere, and even more strange, it doesn't have a "csh"

3.4.6 refers to he compiler (gcc) version.

As they suggested on the other forum that you posted on, it is either;

CentOS 4.8 or

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 4.8)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 4.8)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (v. 4.8)

This should show the release info:
Code:
cat /etc/*release
