mount partition or disk


is there an easy (or canonical) way of (auto)detecting whether a disk is
partitioned, please?

What I have is a SCSI magneto-optical disk drive (230MB removable disks)
and a bunch of disks. With some of the disks, I need to mount /dev/sda1,
with others /dev/sda directly.

(The disks have existing data on them, written under DOS, obviously various
versions of either DOS or the driver.)

Any suggestions?

We'll know the future has arrived when every mailer transparently
quotes lines that begin with "From ", but no-one remembers why.
