To see more then 4 GB of disk space free under NT Samba needs to support
the NT-specific RPC calls.  These calls are not supported in the current
version but, IIRC, are implemented in Samba 2.0 (still in beta).

It shouldn't cause you any problems since you can still use all the disk
space, YMMV... my recommendation would be to wait until Samba 2.0 leaves
beta (very soon now) and just deal with it until then.
