Obscure df -h output

One of my servers appears to be having a slightly dippy moment...
Running FREEBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p5 i386 (I don't have the bottle to attempt
freebsd-update to 7.0-REL, altho I really should... Still a relative
newb tho, and not confident on a box I can only access by remote)
running WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.4-R26157 - I'm seeing some very obscure
results on df -h...

Any clues as to what's going on / advice on how to proceed...? This box
crashed last week whilst I was on holiday and appeared to be a brute for
Planet's TechSupport to get back online... Can't find anything in logs
as to why. Am wondering if HDD is a bit unhealthy? There is a spare
drive mounted in the box that I can begin to clone everything on to if
needs be (and have "Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Edition" and "Best of FreeBSD
Basics" to hand).
