the size of a partion can you find with `df -k` command.

the current bytes in use of a directory you can find with `du -k .`

If you got root login. Then use the format command (Don't change anything around in here though) and select y6our drive (normally 0 if you only got one drive) then select P then P One is for partition and the other will print the parition. This way you can see teh size and what it's mount point is.
