SUMMARY Strange "df" readings

I received a number of replies suggesting there might be "core" files
or large files in "/usr/tmp". One individual sent a perl script to
check disk usage. This gives me a reason to download perl.
In looking at the way we are mounting things acrossed the network, I
found that we had loaded openwindows from the cdrom and then mounted
openwindows from our server over it. Hence, the "df" saw the actual
disk usage and "du" saw the mount and only counted it as 1 block.

I thank everyone for thier replies. They all gave me good places to
