Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System

Assuming IDE devices:

/dev/hda - primary master
/dev/hdb - primary slace
/dev/hdc - secondary master
/dev/hdd - secondary slave

df will list mounted partitions and disk space total/used/available

and 'fdisk -l | less' will output ALL your partitions to 'less' so you can read it comfortably.
