Well, you can get this info quickly by running 'mount' with no arguments.
It tells me:

/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hda1 on /win type vfat (rw)

So /dev/hda3 is on / (root partition) and /dev/hda1 is on /win (windows
