I thought there was a way but couldn't remember what it was. I only used that once. root@fireball / # file /root/foldingathome/fah6 /root/foldingathome/fah6: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped root@fireball / # So I guess we know now that that is 64 bit.
