You mean Ububtu, a Linux Distro right? The command to list the directory in a terminal (a command prompt in Windows term) is

ls
ls -l

Hope this answer your question.

ls -l is to list files in the current directory, rite? wat I was looking for is something like a file explorer in window, by which I can tell which are the directories in which drive. Basically I need to know other than the current directory or drive, what are the other available ones. (sorry, not sure if there is such a thing in ubuntu in the first place :dunno: )

IIRC, in unix a directory is also a file. If you use ls -l you will list file in the current directory.
you can use ls -l / to list all the file in the root directory of the Linux file. Also when you use
ls -l a directory you will see something like this

drwxr-xr-x 28 user group 4096 Sep 26 15:40 www

The d in the 1st column tell you that this entry is a directory. If you want some textbase gui tool, you can install midnight commander yourself from http://www.ibiblio.org/mc/.

Hope this help.

Thanks for all the tips. Found (by chance, ha!) a "File Browser" under the System Tools. Cool!
