Identify the remote mounted drives


I have a couple directories in my current working environment. i want to identify the remote mounted shares among them . for example

My current working directory contains folders
dir1   dir2    dir3 ..etc
dir1 is a remote share from server xyx
dir2 and dir3 are local folders

I have similar kind of directories in multiple locations,  how can i distinguish the local and remote folder ?

Is there any other way to find the remote shares apart from browsing /etc/fstab?

What OS?
in HP-UX you would use bdf, I suppose the the output of df e.g.
df -k

would show them... (left side of the output, you would see server names...)

Please post what Operating System and version you are running and what Shell you prefer.

In unix terms, please define a "remote share" ?

i am using SUSE 11 with bash shell.

What exactly i am looking is differentiating the local and remote mounted folder either by color or some way because many times i though the remote shares as local directories and deleted them using rm.

i can restrict by read only in mounting but i need read write in target location

1) I need some way which throws some warning messaging like you are deleting from remote share or something similar to that which alerts me double check its local copy
2) At least differentiating the directories by color code

any help is much appreciated

thanks all
