And if so, probably stupid question, but what are they in MB? Also,
what size of one cylinder when using fdisk? Any comments are appreciated.
presuming that these are the results of:

# df

try using

# df -h

for human readable output, instead. That'll tell you MB, GB, etc. Much more readable for most folks.

You should see headings like so:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

Followed by a nicely formatted list of devices, their sizes, the amount of each used in MB/GB and percent, and the mount point of each partition.
