Can you provide following information, type:

"fdisk -l"   to list all harddrives in your RH-machine
"df -h" to show mount points and their % of use.

Have you reformatted the drive when you got it? It sounds more that drive is using fat16/32 filesystem
which has pretty small file size limit.

Try to run fdisk -l   as  sudo or root:

"sudo fdisk -l"

or   "su - root " 

"fdisk -l"

I need to see which FileSystem is on the disk /devv/sda1"
