The System Monitor applet (you can get it up and running by
right-clicking on one of the panels and selecting it under "Add to
Panel") gives you a graphical summary of your storage devices under one
tab.  From the command line you can type "df --si" to get a summary of
all your disks or "df --si /path/to/some/mount/point" to get a report on
a specific drive.
