I found a system gathering utility which gives you a bit more details in regards to your build number, at least I think it does.

It's called System Info for Windows:
SIW | System Information for Windows
My 'build lab' info is:
Build Lab 6000.vista_rtm.061101-2205

I'm not sure what if any difference there are or will be with any other systems.

I found that not too many other system gathering tools provide this detailed info, about the build anyways.
