    On Nt, I know that when you go through:
    START-PROGRAMS-WINDOWS NT EXPLORER, you can see the disk layout C,D,E,F,G,H,I,etc. How do you look for the disk layout on a UNIX platform

    type "df", or "df -k" for a slightly more understandable output.

    each of the paths listed there are a mounted partition of a disk. if you're on a sun, the disk names will be the things that look like c0t0d0s0.

    The c is for controller number
    t for target number
    d for disk number
    s for slice (partition) number

    A disk with 2 partitions might have two entries like this

    c0t0d0s0 /usr -- rest info
    d0t0d0s1 /usr/local -- rest of info

    What if the unix flavor is AIX, is it going to be the same layout like you just explained or slightly different?

    beats me, type df and find out :) it will probablly be something similar if not exactly the same, but i really cant' say because i haven't used AIX.

    on AIX.

    lsvg : list of all volume groups
    lsvg <vg> : info about a volume group
    lsvg -l <vg>: list of all logical volumes in a volume group
    lsvg -p <vg>: list of all physical volumes in a volume group

    df : list of all mounted(!) filesystems
    gives following info
    Filesystem device name
    512-blocks total number of 512-byte blocks
    Free free blocks
    %Used % off blocks used
    Iused number of inodes used
    %Iused % off inodes used
    Mounted on mount point of filesystem
    or use df -k to have info in Kbytes

    Hope this helps
