Help with a script

Hi all,I have to get a script together that pulls out the total size and use% space from rootvg, and sends it to an output file.
 df -h
 /Filesystem Size   Used    Avail Use% Mounted on/dev/mapper/rootvg-LogVol00     744M 414M 293M   59%

I am not really a competent scripter and any help would be appreciated.

Please use code tags as required by foru rules!

The out put of the
df -h | awk ' $1 ~ /rootvg/ {print  $2, $3}'

comes up as all blank lines. How would you like me to post them? I did not know that my description was vague.

No need to be upset. What is the output of your df -h?

Output of df - h

Sorry if I appeared upset, I really am not.. It is coming up with blank lines - there is no output

I tried running it as a line command, and then into a file.. with the same results.
