Fire-up a terminal, become root (su) and run the following command:

# fdisk -l


It will show you your partitions. There are some GUI utilities, namely gparted that you can install that will also show your partitions, however, gparted will perform partition related tasks on your partitions.

Like deleting and making, resizing them.

If you are interested in manipulating your partitions, might I suggest that you would do well by booting to a disc for the purpose. System Rescue Disc is my favorite disc for such purposes.

Hope that helped. Welcome to Linux, in a short time you'll wonder how you got along without it.

You will most likely need to install NTFS support. Follow these instructions:

Most Linux distro's can read NTFS all day long. Writing to ntfs is supported, but it creeps me out.
