Checking os architecture?

I have a 64 bit machine. I have just installed 64bit RHEL4AS U4 on it. How to check whether 32bit os got installed or 64 bit os got installed?

use the "uname" command with option "-a "

uname -a

If the output contains the entries like "x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"

means 64 bit is installed
