--> i give df command it gives information about /, /boot, /dev/shm mount partitions

Did you go through the manual entries of the df command?

try this
 $man df
(provides help for df)

--> i want to check my archive folder capacity and other information when i give df command.

What other information , you didnt mention ?

use df -k this command , see this

dogmatix:SID=testdb=>df -k /data1
Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d80      28904917 8700295 19915573    31%    /data1

Thanks tarun,

But one more thing i would like to clarify here is that -
how /data mount point is looking at /dev/md/dsk/d80 this folder.

In /etc/fstab file u need to specify or anywhere else?

Plz clarify me this.

I am not sure but when you install linux , at that time it ask for partitioning and mount points.

so this /data1 is a just the name but /dev/md/dsk/d80 is the actual mount point.

I am saying this because i remember installing linux and it asked to create partitions like that.

And if there is something more then do let me know please .

format your disk
mkfs -t ext3 -c /dev/sdg1
mount the disk
mount /dev/sdb1 /www /
edit the fstab
vi /etc/fstab
/dev/sdb1 /www ext3 defaults 1 2


good luck
