Default Re: a fix for freespace

My solution was to modify the script to use a different binary. Here's how I did it.

blabla ....

I think that should about do it. I don't remember changing anything else though I might have. If this mod doesn't work someone let me know. You can find me on irc. One thing you'll notice is that %free space is missing when you do !free <section>. I just didn't feel like modifying that portion of code as I don't really care about %free. You can add it back if you want.

Many, many thanks go to a friend who modified the code to look for free space and total space in different columns in the output. And also for making it deal with spaces in volume label names. Never would have done it without.

Hope you guys like this and find it useful. I sure did. I've also included a a zip file with the df.exe file and my show_free proc in a text file if it makes it easier for you guys.
