Hard Disk Size Confusion (RH7.2)

I tried to install webmin program to configure my samba. When I installed the webmin it gave me a warning that the hard disk size not enough. the warnings are as below:
warning: Expected size: 7602345
warning: Actual size: 3134663
1: webmin error unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/libexec/webmin/init/save_action.cgi;3f527951: cpio:read failed - Bad file descriptor

It looks like that there is not enough space for me to install the program but confusingly enough that when I check the hardisk using df -h, I still have 1.1G on my /dev/hda2 mounted on / and 37M on my /dev/hda1 mounted on /boot
Please help....Thanks

check the output of fdisk -l and file permissions. your webmin package might be damaged. try using another package
