[Samba] redhat 8 and large files

Dear sirs,

I am running redhat 8, kernal 2.4.20-28.8smp...I can mount my PC easily 
enough, but I want to access a plugin USB drive..so I try to mount that
but on the USB  the disc files are very large 

48 Gb

(it is a plugin USB...400 GB)

which mounts itself on the PC to the F:

i use  the simple command on the linux side

 smbmount "//mozart/f /icy"  username=mozart\paul

and I get a mount ...hurragh

but a simple 'df' seems ok, but the file size list is wrong, and I can access 
the files, but not to thier full extent...i.e. it reads at the start at the 
file then looses the plot...but does not crash just goes on and on....

//mozart/disk1_(F)    373G  372G  1.5G 100% /icy

and a 'll'
[root at reformat01 grog]# ll /icy
total 15033091789

Thanks in advance
