When I perform the following:

Host->New VM

Open in new window


VMWare asks me what OS I want

I click on Linux, then I click on one of the following choices:

RHEL 5 (32)
RHEL 5(64)
RHEL 6 (64)
etc....

Open in new window


Now that I have created my RHEL, I want to check to see exactly what OS I selected at VM creation time (not OS install time)

Can anyone tell me how to do this ?

Thanks
