help: wrong df partition size

I got installed Fedora 11 on my harddrive (sdb) its physical size is 320GB.
during installation i use custom layout to set swap partition to 512MB
and set "/" partition using ext3 to maximum allowable partition size
then when i issue df -h i got this :

[root@g1 ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1              16G  1.9G   14G  13% /
tmpfs                 246M     0  246M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             917G  853G   18G  98% /media/shared
/dev/sdc1             917G  407G  464G  47% /media/shared2
which is my / partition is 16GB of size. where it should be ~320GB.
when i see using "fdisk /dev/sdb":

Disk /dev/sdb: 320.0 GB, 320071851520 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xfd27fd27

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *           1       38848   312044353   83  Linux
/dev/sdb2           38848       38913      524288   83  Linux
it seems the disk is recognized as 320GB and /dev/sdb1 partition using nearly maximum
cylinders at 38848 of maximum 38913

so why "df" see it 16GB size not 320GB ?
what's the problem
