    To expand upon what ozar said, the output of the uname -a command will say something like this if your system is 64-bit:

    Code:
    Linux 2.6.22     X86_64
    And something like this if it's 32-bit:

    Code:
    Linux 2.6.22     i686

    Code:
    $ cat /proc/cpuinfo
    Will also give details on the CPU(s) installed.
