Depending on the Controller, and drives in the server it may look something like this..
(this info is for the HP Smart Array Controller)
           Device Boot   Start      End      Blocks    Id   System
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1   *        1        5       40131    83   Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2            6       68      506047+   82   Linux swap / Solaris
