Jeffrey, Carlos, Ken,

Thanks for replying. I did the disk usage command and the following is
the result. That partition is 2 gigs. I don' see amything that jumps
out at me. Maybe I am not seeing/doing it correctly.

EasyStreet:/ # du -sch /*
7.7M /bin
6.8M /boot
480K /dev
26M /etc
8.0K /hdabkup
74M /lib
14M /lib64
16K /lost+found
du: `/media/cdrecorder': No medium found
du: `/media/dvdrecorder': No medium found
du: `/media/floppy': No medium found
12K /media
4.0K /mnt
1.1G /proc
53M /root
11M /sbin
1.4M /srv
0 /sys
56K /tmp
12K /windows
??G total (about 195 M not counting proc of 1.1 G)(Does /proc
count in disk usage ?)
EasyStreet:/ #

I didn't show /home, usr, opt, var as they are all on their own
partitions. More ideas, guidance, please ? KDiskFree shows the /
partition as being 98.6 % used

Carlos, checked in mc also. Nothing obvious. I do have several old
kernels laying around. Is it safe to remove anything and everything
associated with an old kernel? Here is what I have in my /boot
directory:

All of the Yast2 stuff is in /var/lib/yast which is on a different
partition so it wouldn't effect this problem. (pretty big though and if
I knew what I was doing I would clean it out)
