Dear All, How do I know if I am running a 64 Bit system or a 32 Bit system?

Launch System Profiler (Applications > Utilities > System Profiler or About This Mac > More Info…)
Click on the “Software” heading in the left pane
Check the “64-bit Kernel and Extensions” line for a Yes or a No.

This has been covered previously here.

How do I change

This Apple KB article outlines how to tell OS X to boot with a 32 or 64 bit kernel by default.

More information regarding how to determine if your Mac is capable of booting a 64 bit kernel can be found in the first link I posted above.
