I have 8.04.1 somewhat functional on an Asus eee 901 and am trying to understand how installation-partitions correspond with partitions reported by fdisk -l and with partitions reported by system monitor file systems. The latter shows only sda1, sdb1, and sdc1 -- whereas fdisk -l reports sda1,2,3,4 and sdb1,2,5, and sdc1. File Browser shows even less information, so I'm wondering why my system monitor file systems is showing only some of partitions. Here's the fdisk -l:



/dev/sda1 * 1 400 3212968+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 401 488 706860 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 489 489 8032+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 490 490 8032+ 83 Linux

GNOME System Monitor shows you only mounted filesystems. Fdisk shows you all filesystems. To see all filesystems graphically, try GParted.
