RH Installation

I had previously posted a problem getting RH6.0 installed on my machine at
work.  After trying various things, I decided to step down one and try a RH
5.x installation and then upgrade (thinking it may be a bug in the RH
installation program).  Well, the same problem shows up on a RH 5.1
installation.  I did a df -k on my drives with the following results:

                  1024-blocks      Used    Available    Capacity
Mounted On
/dev/root                1932       887         945         48%         /
/tmp/hdc               491142    491142           0        100%
/tmp/hda7             1243719     18076     1161385          2%         /mnt/
/tmp/hda8              124407    124407           0        100%
/tmp/hda9              124407     4284       113699          4%

It looks like my /usr partition is the same as my /var partition which is
125MB.  Yet I defined it in Disk Druid as 1250MB.  I know Disk Druid is
creating a 1250MB partition because I can see it in Disk Administrator
(NT).  The disk drive is a Western Digital 28400/8.4GB IDE drive.  Any
ideas why the RH installation program thinks my 1250MB partition is 125MB?

Thank you,

All that is Microsoft does not glitter,           
Not all those who wander are lost;                 
The old AT&T Unix that is strong does not wither, 
Deep roots are not reached by frost.              

From the ashes of Spec1170 a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;            
Renewed shall be the Unix OS that was broken,     
Linux shall be king.
