this is one of the links to a site that lists build information

http://www.sqlsecurity.com/FAQs/SQLServerVersionDatabase/tabid/63/Default.aspx

I would suggest that you patch to service pack 3 as minimum, always better to rollup to latest service pack, as it is normally fully tested and all the updates have been rolled in the service pack.

normally running

select @@version

will give you all you need.
