df - diskfree tool checks how much space file/dirs take
fdisk - hardisk partitioning tool, used to make and maintain partitions.

Hi teera
use " cat /etc/fstab " to find out where home is mounted
you can also get more info on your mounted stuff with mount -l
to go straight to your home directory use " cd ~ "
Hope that helps
