Question How much space is Linux using


I am a new Linux user running Fedora Core 5. I wanted to know how I can check how much of the 10GB I partitioned for Fedora is being used and how much space I have available to fool around with. I looked under System->Logical Volume Management but I don't think that's it. Pls help
