What up.

I'm semi-new to Linux and can't figure out somthing that I think should be easy to find out. I want to know how much disk space I've got left on my drive. I know its not much, but I don't know how to find out.

Thanks folks

"df" in a term ought to do the trick.

A df -h will put it in a more readable form. A man df will tell you all there is to know about df.
