The product description on such sites usually contains a hint, such
as an explanation that the distribution on the CDs is the one from
"the leading Linux distributor from the U.S. with just the name
changed to not violate trademark laws". Sometimes they even write
explicitly something like "the content of these CDs is identical to
the downloadable version of Red Hat Linux". Or the product is called
"Green Shoe Linux 7.3 Valhalla" which is enough a hint for those who
know.
