psql --version
     psql (PostgreSQL) 7.4.1
     contains support for command-line editing
or from within psql
select version();
      PostgreSQL 7.4.1 on i686-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC 2.95.4
     (1 row)

If you've got an earlier version of postgres you can download the 
appropriate pgAdmin version (pgAdminII probably), which used to be 
available on the website
