Painting old trim

How do you determine if old paint is oil based or latex? Is it okay to use latex over old oil base?

I think you should be alright. I have an old house and some of the walls have a few layers of paint one or two of which is oil. Anyways, I primer'd (sp) and then painted and it looks great.
