take the forks you currently have off and have a look?
measure the steerer.
if your headset has big f-off locknut on top of it then it'll be a threaded steerer, but you'll be able to tell when you take it apart.

It's times like thi sthat a picture really comes in useful.

Approximately, yes! From where the steerer disappears into the head tube of the frame to the top of the steerer - which should be about 1/4" below the cap through which the bolt goes into the star nut in the steerer which holds it all together!

(this assumes a plain, not threaded, steerer!)
