Not Understanding RAID setup

Hey guys, Im running latest Red Hat on this server we just got in..

We have 20 1TB hard drives RAID 0 I believe.

when I view partitions through parted then print it says sdb1 is the 19TB partition and its in /dev/

...when I go here to find it I cant locate sdb1...

In simple terms...if we want to set up a file system to stick all our apps and files..where should I put it in the system?

Is dev allocated 19TB? or is it some sdb1 that I dont understand how to view? Im pretty bad with linux..if anyone has some suggestions on how to view folder sizes and allocations or how to somehow access this partition please let me know (or any insight as to how a RAID fully works)

Thanks in advance

your question is not understandable if you want to know the good answer then ask the right question. for what I understand do the following.

on the terminal type.

df -h

you will get the out put for your partitions. post the output. then ask what you want to do with partitions.
