    Do you mean the size of your physical hard drives, partitions, or filesystems?
    You can see the physical size of your hard drives in /proc/ide/hd?/capacity, given in 512 byte sectors.
    Partitions can be listed with the command "fdisk -l /dev/hd?"
    You can check the total, used and free space of all mounted filesystems with the command df.
