[opensuse] Partition Query

Just wanted to query something with the partitioning on my disk.
I had to reinstall the OS this evening (KDE 10.3) and it looks as though the previous partitions for previous system are still present which is not what i had intended. I don't much about this, so i'm not sure if it's something i need to be concerned about or not, but i do want to make sure i haven't caused a problem.
I opened Kdiskfree which shows the following:
DEVICE TYPE SIZE MOUNT POINT
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_WDC_WD16.... ext3 N/A /
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_WDC_WD16 ext3 N/A /home
/dev/fd0 auto N/A /media/floppy
/dev/sda5 ? 19.7GB /
/dev/sda6 ? 105.4GB /home
debugfs debugfs N/A /sys/kernel
udev ? 1,002MB /dev
Does this look right?
During the install i wanted to completely remove the previous installation and repartition the new OS using the whole disk, but i'm not certain that has happened.
I'm using a SATA 160GB hard drive on a Dell XPS laptop on 64bit Architecture.
I'd be really grateful if someone could explain what has happened and if i need to be concerned at all.
I''m sorry if this seems a silly request, i just want to understand what i've done.
Thanks in advance, Jamie
