((All right, do you want me to spoil it for you?

Here's the basic synopsis of the movie:
After graduating from Stanford, two idealistic computer whiz kids who are best friends are offered jobs at NURV, a giant Portland company with a driven boss, Gary Winston, on the verge of a world-linking satellite communication system. With support from his girlfriend Alice, Milo takes the job; Teddy says no and continues work on a media compression program he wants to make available free. Winston takes a person interest in Milo, whose genius can help NURV meet its launch date, and Milo responds with brilliance and long hours. When Teddy is murdered, One of Winston's offhand remark makes Milo suspicious, he decides to investigate Winston and NURV.


From there it becomes a 'who can you trust movie', with the girlfriend turning out to be working for Gary, Gary had Teddy killed because he was about to launch the same product before NURV, and he ain't the only one he's killed, Milo works with a coworker, Lisa Calighan, but when they confront Gary, it turns out Lisa is actually working for Gary, but Milo and a friend manage to put a video of everything Gary's done, using the same satelite system he killed Teddy for

Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.
