Suse 7.2 eating disk space

Hi, All,
I'm running Suse 7.2 and KDE on a PC. In the past couple of days, I've suddently noticed that disk space was being consumed at a remarkable rate, while no activity that I can think of could be responsible. Yesterday I freed up 300 MB of space, this morning when I came in it was all used.

I'm a totally incompetent user - still - and would appreciate any assistance as to how I can:

- Identify the culprit
- Identify the files it has been creating
- Stop this problem.

I thank you in advance,

Please read the following frequently asked, frequently asked questions
before posting to the list. As with any mailing list or newsgroup,
it's usually a good idea to read the list for a few days before

----Some Frequently Asked, Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What is the suse-linux-e mailing list?
A1. SLE is a high volume, unmoderated mailing list for general
discussions about SuSE Linux in English. In other words,
it's a wild, largely unsupervised, collection of Linux
users that will flood your mailbox with 100-200 messages
per day. It's also a great place to get help with your
SuSE Linux system or have discussions about Linux.

Q2. What is appropriate content for the list?
A2. Questions about configuration, maintenance, and implementation
of SuSE Linux. The emphasis is on the x86 platform since we have
separate lists for AXP, Sparc, IA64, and PPC.

Q3. What is not appropriate content for the list?
A3. Commercial postings of any kind, job postings, non-computer/Linux
related material. Because of the large size of the list (1500
subscribers and ~200 messages per day), flame wars and off-topic
posting can sometimes result in you being unsubscribed and, in
extreme cases, banned from the list. Also, please unsubscribe
now if you planning on posting advocacy-type things. There are
lots of advocacy newsgroups such as comp.os.linux.advocacy.

Q4. How can I retrieve the FAQ?
A4. Send an email to suse-linux-e-faq@xxxxxxxx

Q5. Can I send attachments to the list?
A5. You can but anything that's not plain text or a PGP/GPG
key will be silently removed from your mail.

Q6. Are there archives of the list?
A6. Yes,
Currently, they are not searchable.

Q7. Why do my replies go to the original poster and not the list?
A7. There is a more complete answer in FAQ, but the short answer
is that it's better this way. Trust us on this one, please.

Q8. Can I get the list in digest form?
A8. Not from us. There's a much more complete discussion about
this in the FAQ as well.

Q9. How do I pause deliveries from the list while I'm on vacation?
A9. You unsubscribe before you leave and resubscribe when you return.
