Determine available disk space for Win 95

I have a mixture of Win95 and Win98 computers.  From the Samba host I mount 
the Win95/98 host using  a script containing commands similar to the 
following text.

mount -t smbfs //pent14/pent14-e /dosworld/pent14/e -o username=fred\%xxxxxxx

After I have mounted all the drives I issue the following command.

df -h

Results show the available space on the Win98 hosts properly,  however all 
the Win95  hosts(ie pent14) report that their disk size as 2G even through 
that have capacities greater that 2G.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use%   Mounted on
/dev/hda1              2.9G   1.1G  1.7G  40%   /
/dev/hdb1              5.6G   20k    5.3G   0%   /disk2
//pent14/pent14-e   2.0G     0     2.0G     0% /dosworld/pent14/e
//pent20/pent20-c   38G   31G    7.2G   81% /dosworld/pent20/c

Any suggestion on how to track disk size and available space on Win 95 hosts?
