Take a look at my df output:
Filesystem           1M-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5                 2953       221      2582   8% /
/dev/hda1                   15         2        13   9% /boot
/dev/hdf1                38460         1     36506   1% /mnt/tmp
/dev/hde1                58642     36245     22397  62% /mnt/ftp

As you can see, I even miss ~150M on my root partition. This could have
several reasons:
1) Inodes, superblocks and other fs-accounting data take up some space.
2) A journalled fs is used: the journal takes up space too!
3) The fs is somewhat fragmented

Perhaps this helps....
