this why its good to create seperate partitions, this way you can't stop
the system from booting by filling up slash
as root goto the / directory and run
du -s *
which will give you the total for each directory of slash in kilobytes.
Keep doing that to narrow down the directories that are the biggest.
do a man on du for other useful options like du -a (will the size of
directories and files).
With some other shell commands (sort, grep, uniq) you can probably find
what eating up the space

We'll call that the wiggly-diggly.
