How to determine partition type?

Hi there,

I have the following question - is there any way (command, config file, etc.) in which you can determine on what kind of partition (ext2, ext3, NFS, etc.) a given directory is mounted on? (For example '/ '). Thank you.

Simply issuing "mount" will also tell you which partitions are mounted where, along with their file system types.
