I urge you to cover some linux basics before getting into Glusterfs. 
Copying blindly without understanding what you are doing is a recipe for 
/dev/sdb1 in a linux system points to the 1st partition of the 2nd 
SCSI/SATA drive. Drives are labeled sda, sdb, sdc and so on (hda, hdb, 
hdc etc for old IDE drives); partitions are represented via numbers.
