Congrats on getting that cluster up and running. May it grow well past 5 nodes. :) 

The ring view shows the number of partitions and which ip owns them (which by default = 64) Conversely, the Cluster page will show only the physical nodes. 

Check out the Riak Control page on the wiki [1] and the Clustering information on the wiki [2] for more information on Control and how partitions work, respectively. 

Hope that helps.
