Thanks to all who replied....
Many of you told told me to take a look at xdpyinfo in /usr/openwin/bin.
Although xdpyinfo has alot of useful info, it did not however tell me
what X11 Release I am using.......

The correct way to find out what X11 Release you are using came from
George Goffe.

For solaris 1
grep XtSpecificationRelease /usr/include/X11/Intrinsic.h

For solaris 2
grep XtSpecificationRelease /usr/openwin/share/include/X11/Intrinsic.h

And that will give you the release you are using...

In general:
SunOS 4.1.x Openwindows 3.0 and below is X11R4
Solaris 2.x Openwindows 3.1 and above is X11R5

Thanks again to all who replied
