Why is du telling me that I'm using 9.7G of the disk while df says I'm using
over 17G?

-H reports back by powers of 1000 while -h reports back 1024, but that still doesnt account for the ammount of difference there. Did you recently delete a lot of files? It could be that a process still has a file open that needs to be closed before reporting that space free to df.
