I assume that you're talking about the front diff? If you are then the easiest way to tell is to remove both front driveshafts and have a look through the transfer box. If you can see straight through then the chances are you've got the torque biasing limited slip front diff. If there is a shaft across the hole in the t/box then you've got an open front diff.

Err easier

Err easier

Jack car up on 4 axle stands

Leave out of gear

Spin front wheels BOTH wheels should spin the same way if LSD is there
I'd assume the same for the rear 2 as well

This works on FWD and RWD so I see no reason it shouldn't on a 4wd

Works on my GTti which has LSD

Please feel free to flame at leisure :D

Oakleaf,
Your strategy would work if the fron diff was a plated front diff but unfortunately ours is a Torsen type front diff and so the wheel spinning trick doesn't work.
