First off, in all versions of HP-UX prior to 11.00, the kernel is always
32-bit.  That being said, on 11.x systems, there are several ways to
determine whether you're running a 32 or 64 bit kernel...

From the command-line
=====================
  $ getconf KERNEL_BITS

or:

  $ file /stand/vmunix
  /stand/vmunix:  PA-RISC1.1 executable           --->   32-bit
  /stand/vmunix:  ELF-64 executable object file   --->   64-bit

From SAM
========
  1) goto Performance Monitors -> System Properties -> Operating System
  2) check OS Kernel Width: value
