"My Computer" and Gnome


How do I list the partitions in Gnome?
When i select Computer, I only see Filesystem, Floppy, CD/DVDrom, but not the partitions like in KDE.

Is there a way, to set it up like in KDE?
Does anybody know, how to configure KDE or Gnome to show size of partitions, space left,.. like in OpenSUSE 10.2?

thanks for your help

In that case try gnome-system-monitor; it has quite a nice display of all the partitions and how much of each is used.
