I'm trying to figure out whether I installed a SharePoint server in Farmed mode or Stand-alone. What can I do to check?

As per this thread:
Check the registry
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS"
There will be an entry for "ServerRole" which will tell you the installation type
