How do I find how much disk is used in Redhat

I have Redhat Linux ES 3.0 and want to check how much disk space is used and how much is free. In windows I just click on My Computer and the disks are there, but in linux I'm at a loss on how to do this. I want to do it from the GUI (X-windows)

One GUI tool I know from that's doing this is
'KDiskFree'

Should be available over KMenu (StartMenu) --> System --> FileSystem --> KDiskFree
                                                                                 or  --> Monitor --> Storage Devices

Run
df -hl

The quickest and simplest way is by using a console, just type:

df -h

You can also look to see how much a specific folder is using, by going to the folder in a console (cd /foldername) and typing:

du -sh
