hmm... if you were closer I'd come over with a Partition Magic boot disk.

Seeing as how thats not an option, see if you can get a Partition Magic boot disk somewhere, and load into that... it'll give you some real good info about your file system, including if its messed up.

Have you tried running scandisk on it? The free space may just be grossly incorrect.

Barring those two options, I'd need to have the computer in front of me to try stuff, I don't have a known fix aside from recreating a bad partition.
