    That is not the distribution but the kernel. Usually the name of the distribution is shown on the screen in large letter when you boot. The commands should work for a Red Hat or Debian based system so you probably don't have either if you get a 'command not found' with both although you only indicate the apt-get.

    Is some of the ways to find out what operating system you are using Though in rpm distros I have no experience.

    .el5 would typically indicate a red hat based distro. In such a case, I believe git resides in the EPEL repository which you need to add before installation.

    Code:
    rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
    yum install git
    [edit]More info on EPEL[/edit]
