Just install any app like Titanium Backup from Market, and it verifies that you are able to become root, if not it will tell you.

There is an app check root (I think) that will tell you for sure. I used it when my tablet appeared rooted but was not.

check if you have superuser app installed in the system. If its there in the apps then there are chances. You can confirm it by opening apps like Titanium backup (free version available in market). It will ask for root permission while opening.

even easier:

open terminal emulator, type: "su root", press enter and check if there pops up a Super User request

For those that know what you are talking about, perhaps. For the rest of the world, I believe the 'Check Root' app would be simpler
