 Wrong file system size info

df and /etc/dfspace give me wrong information about available disk space
on Open Server 5.

The system I have installed Open Server 5 on (Compaq Proliant 4500) has
10 disks of 2.1 GB each. These are configured in a RAID 5 array (hardware
raid) with one hot swappable drive, ie only 9 disks are used.

This is what the PC Bios tells me:

10 x 2.1  disks        21    GB
- hot swappable drive   2.1  GB
- parity info           3.1  GB
                       16.8  GB

Divvy tells me I've got roughly 16 GB available. Of that, one division
uses 10 GB (HTFS).

If I look at the file systems however, either through the desktop front
end or via df or /etc/dfspace it states I have 20 GB disk space available
and the 10 GB file system is in fact 14 GB large (the other file system
sizes correspond with divvy).
This is clearly wrong!

Does anyone have come across this before?

 Wrong file system size info

df normally gives sizes in terms of 512-byte blocks.  Use the -k flag to
get 1K blocks, e.g. `df -vk`.

dfspace should be correct.  Perhaps you could post the actual output
from `df; df -v; df -vk; /etc/dfspace`?
