Question way to view disk space in kde 3.2?

What a dumb question but how the heck to I view disk space in kde 3.2? I'm used to winXP and seeing it in My Computer, is there an equivalent in linux? or do I have to type in some console command or something? thanks!

Welcome to LQ!

The only dumb question is the one that doesn't get answered.

I'm a cli kind of guy...

df - report filesystem disk space usage

Open a shell with that icon that looks like a monitor with a shell overlaid and issue
$ df -h
and get something that looks like
bash-2.05b$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc6             957M  693M  265M  73% /
/dev/hdc1              79M   34M   45M  44% /boot
/dev/hdc2              49G  3.7G   45G   8% /home
/dev/hdc3             4.7G  2.0G  2.8G  41% /usr
/dev/hdc5             1.9G   60M  1.9G   4% /var
/dev/hdc7             1.4G   33M  1.3G   3% /tmp
/dev/hda7              14G  8.7M   14G   1% /DATA_FAT32
/dev/hda8             4.7G  4.0K  4.7G   1% /TEMP_FAT32

What is the Gnome version of KDisk Free?

I'll probably just use the cli option here, but I've never found the Gnome version of KDisk Free. Is there one? I assume there is, because everything seems to be hiding in Linux - you just have to find it. Thanks! tcurt
