Hey you guys, this should be a easy question. I'm using Red Hat Linux 9 do i find out my hard drive space information (such as total size, used space, free space). Thanx

Run this command in your terminal: df -h

It will show you all your partitions and the total size, used size, and available percentage.
The -h option sets it to human readable output, which is quicker to read.

Or try the Gnome system monitor. Go to Main menu > System Tools > System Monitor. Then go to the System Monitor tab. The partitions and space usage are in the devices section in the bottom. You may need to drag its handle up though.

fdisk -l (as root) will show partitions also
