How can I tell what version (if any) of BITS is installed on a machine?

I am in the process of upgrading our SMS 2003 infrastructure to SCCM 2007. I need to check which clients aren't running BITS 2.5 or later so I can roll this out before I install the SCCM clients.
How can I tell which version if any is installed on a machine? I would be looking for a file or registry entry or something like that ideally.

Check the file version of %windir%\system32\qmgr.dll

If it is:
6.0.x.x its BITS 1.0
6.2.x.x its BITS 1.2
6.5.x.x its BITS 1.5
6.6.x.x its BITS 2.0

Thank you both for getting back so quickly. Both solutions are equally valid but the second suited my purposes more. Thank you both for your efforts.
I'm glad I could be of service and thank you for the points.
