Do you see anything unusual in my partition info (FC1)

Greetings all

Sorry for the imprecise thread title- I would be very grateful for some help deciphering the following;

Right now I have my whole ~76Gb (I thought) drive given over to FC1.

I want to try some other distros, and donate some space from FC1 for them to use.

My file structure seems to be a bit wierd I think:

[root@localhost local]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2              72G  3.7G   65G   6% /
none                  378M     0  378M   0% /dev/shm
OK, so plenty of space there, but why hda2...and...

[root@localhost local]# mount
/dev/hda2 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=660)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
and also less etc/fstab:

LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=660  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1             /mnt/cdrom1             udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
Anyhow, and thanks for reading this far, my question is two-fold:

1) does info look OK for an everything install of FC1,

2) related, why is the / showing up as hda2, I thought hda1 was the first part; I have no other OS installed....

Thanks so much for any help,

Hi chefmark ,
it seems FC1 made cool partitioning of your disk.

hda1 partition is the /boot one so you don't see it in the output of the df command. Then comes your hda2, wich is the root partition and last comes the hda3 partition - the FC1's swap one.

Your fstab file looks prety good, so I'd not worry about it.

Kind regards,
