I have like this. Do you know what does this 8 represent?
The device driver (see below).
The first entry listed (sda) is the device, the subsequent entries (sda1-15) are the partitions on the device.And what do thefirst and second parameter represent? Any pointers? And one more thing if I can ask, how can determine if it is a partition or a disk itself? 9At leastin this case, all of them are partitions).
[root@lin1 dev]# ls -ltr | grep sda brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 0 Nov 17 12:35 sda brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 1 Nov 17 12:35 sda1 brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 2 Nov 17 12:35 sda2
<SNIP>The 8 is a major number and the numbers afterwards are called minor numbers. The major number represents the device driver (in this case SCSI), the minor number represents the instance (you can have many instances).

You can tell that by the numbers on the end of the device (sda1 is the first partition, sda2 is the second and so on).I am not sure how to tell if it is partitioned via fdisk or not. Randy
