How do i know if i'm using ipv6?

I've been trying to disable this by adding  a line to resolv.conf but it hasnt seemed to work.
This is because my DNS recover is taking long periods of time. How do i know if ipv6 is
currently enabled?

in fedora distro for example

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and check the cfg gfile for your NIC and put IPV6=NO

with ifconfig you can find the v6 addr.

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:13:02:7C:A9:B8  
          inet addr:192.168.1.146  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: 2000:1223:1754:0:213:2ff:fe4c:a9b8/64 Scope:Global    <----------- here you have the v6 address
          inet6 addr: fe80::213:2ff:fe7c:a9b8/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
