Should show up in a packet capture, believe you should be able to see the mpls header.

what i mean't was what configurations would be used on say a switch or router so when i was to look at a config i could see some MPLS going on.

Ive read that dependant on how old equipment is, that MPLS works on most and can carryout traffice more efficiently and robustly across most pieces of equipment and across all types of networks so im assuming also, rip, igrp, eigrp, ospf & bgp bgp+4.

Assuming Cisco, you should see items in the config related to 'mpls ip' VRF, RD, route-targets. On the interfaces you should see the VRF applied (ip vrf forwarding name), etc.

You can find config examples here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk436/tk428/tech_configuration_examples_list.html

mpls only makes sense if your are huge or a service provider in need of carrying traffic from different customers independently over your network.
