Technology Training Questions
The short and easy answer - look in the lower left hand corner of your screen. If there is a green button labeled "start" then you have Windows XP. If you have a gray button but it is gray then just click on the bottom and look at the vertical text on the left of the bar set to a blue background. This will read your windows version if you have 95, 98, ME, 2000 or XP. If you don't have a start button then you probably have OSX, Linux, or something else.
To find out what version of Apple (Mac) OS X you have installed, at the upper right hand corner of the screen, click on the apple icon and select "About this mac..." from the menu. This will display your version.
Linux distributions vary considerably in their interface and version. Talk to your lab manager or IT person.
The long and exact answer - If you're running windows, go ahead and click on the start button and select "Run" from the menu. This will bring up a small box with a text prompt. Type "winver" and hit enter. This will bring up a dialogue box that will display your windows version, including service packs and build number.

Unfortunately we can't write guides for everything out there. Your best shot might be to check out Google and see if there's a guide that already exists. We do have some material for Windows 95/98 available.
