Bit version for OS or CPU?

Specs: Linux
Hi all,

I have a very basic question.

I have a DELL LATITUDE d6300 laptop. I have WinXP in one partition and Ubuntu 8.04 in another.

My processor is Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz.

Now I want to know if the processor is or let us say the OS is running in 32-bit or 64-bit version.

I thought this bit-version depends on data width of processor and hence if it is 32 bit wide, then the OS has to work in that version.


Can anybody explain this?

also how to find the bit version in my case??
