Finding your SQL Server Version

How I went about finding out what my current SQL server version was

One of our clients in the company I work for is running SQL Server 2000, how do I know this wonderful bit of information you ask? Well, let me tell you;

SELECT @@VERSION AS theVersion

This took longer than 30 seconds to work out, which is frankly too long, so hopefully I will save someone else the pain when trying to work out what version you are running when you have limited privileges.

I ran this in the "MASTER" database, I am not sure if this is required though.
