To see which dm is running you may do something like

ps -ax | grep dm

and look for line matching gdm or kdm or xdm (only one at a time !)

To know which version is installed, with redhat you could do

rpm -q gdm

If you don't know from what package the dm is taken from, you can do:

rpm -qf `which gdm`

(if you use gdm)
