32Bit or 64bit?


I have Red Hat installed on a few boxes, and I was wondering if there is a easy way to tell if I am running 32Bit or 64Bit.

Thanks.

At least that will tell you what type of kernel.

Here is what I have for one box:

Linux 2.4.18-3 #1 Thu Apr 18 07:37:53 EDT 2002 i686 unknown

i686 would be pentium class but uncertain if it is 32Bit or 64Bit.
