Ok, let try to do it gether, bear with me
You are using an external usb hard disk.
Assuming Hal is running.
1. Execute 'ls /dev/sd*'
2. Result should /dev/sda, /dev/sda1...
Note it may be /dev/sdb... to /dev/sdz..., depending on the situation.
3. Let assume you have /dev/sda, execute 'fdisk -l /dev/sda'
It will list your partitioning.
