    Re: remaining free hd space

    open a terminal (applications > accessories > terminal) and type:

    Code:
    df -h
    then press enter.

    or for a nice graphical look, go to applications > accessories > disk usage analyzer.

    you can also place a system monitor applet in your panel. right click on either top or bottom panel and choose "add to panel". find "system monitor" in the list and click on it, then press the "add" button. after that you can just click on the system monitor applet > file systems tab, and it will show the used/available hard drive space.
