-  <p>Short introductory text...</p>
+    <p>The <gui>File Systems</gui> tab of <app>System Monitor</app> displays a list of the <em>disk 
devices</em> on your computer. The path given in the column <gui>Device</gui> is an interface assigned by 
your computer during start-up to a given <em>partition</em> of the disk it exists on. The term "partition" 
describes one or more physical areas of storage on a single physical drive. The computer makes these 
partitions accessible to the user via an assigned <em>file system</em> in a process referred to as 
<em>mounting</em>. The <gui>Device</gui> column shows the automatically assigned interface (which may or may 
not be mounted) while the <gui>Directory</gui> column shows the mounted location. You can double-click the 
device to open up the mounted directory in <app>Nautilus</app>.</p>
+    <p>The identifiers assigned by the computer (in the <gui>Device</gui> column) reflect the physical 
location of each device. <cmd>/dev/sda</cmd> is the first disk. <cmd>/dev/sda1</cmd> is the first partition 
on the first disk. <cmd>/dev/sdb2</cmd> is the second partition on the second disk, and so on. The final 
letter describes the disk, and the number describes the partition on that disk.</p>

+    <note><p>To learn more about disk setup, look for the <app>Disk Utility</app> application in the 
<gui>Activities</gui> menu. This tool provides comprehensive information about your computer's drives and 
their partitions.</p></note>
