<From a confused Ubuntu beginner, running 8.04:>
Yesterday I stumbled through the steps to move my Home folder to a separate partition, mounted at /Home. I believe that it set up correctly, but here's my question:
When I open up a File Manager window at Computer, on the sidebar/tree area I've got two sections, "Home Folder" & "File System". My home folder contents [Documents etc] are listed in both areas [???]. Do I now have two user account folders?
Is there some way for me to log in to a Terminal session, & bring up a list of the directories that are specifically on one partition [e.g., /dev/sda2] or the other?
TIA for your time!

<from OP:> I was unaware of the fact that the "df" cmd could be used for directories as well as files!
poof--'problem' evaporates.
Have fun!
