It's not going to show you the partition per-se. All you get is the unix-like directory structure; /home, /mnt, /usr etc. You can see the partitions you have by:
You'll get a long list, you are interested in hda#, hdb# for IDE drives and sda#, sdb# etc for SATA and SCSI. If you have to mount them individually, use:
mount /dev/sda# /media/*destination*
Substitute where necessary.
I always recommend having /home on a different partition, just in case you have to reinstall Linux, you won't lose your data and preferences.
