It's extremely unlikely that there is one generally in linux, because it
would almost certainly have to be done by the installer and generally the
installer is one of the distribution-specific items. So, what linux
distribution are you asking about?
If you're asking about debian-based distributions (debian, ubuntu, ...) you
should have a look in /var/log/installer.log or possibly
/var/log/installer/ though I'm not sure if the above info is there.
How useful this piece of information is if you can find it is another
question. In the systems I've dealt with the type of install is really
just a short-cut for a particular selection of packages so the installed
package list should probably be much the same information -- if anything
that more accurately describes the setup of a machine.
