[vox-tech] I'm out of space on /


I was trying to install kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686, on debian sarge. But I'm getting:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686_2.6.8-16
_i386.deb (--unpack):
failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1): backend dpkg-deb during `./lib/modules/
2.6.8-2-686/kernel/sound/pci/trident/snd-trident-synth.ko': No space left on device

I don't know what's taking up space and what I can delete. I did a

hydrogen:/# du -hxs *
2.7M bin
8.3M boot
0 cdrom
88K dev
6.9M etc
1.0K initrd
0 initrd.img
79M lib
12K lost+found
3.0K media
6.0K mnt
385M proc
3.3M root
3.6M sbin
1.0K srv
0 sys
13K tmp
0 vmlinuz

Now I'm a bit afraid to reboot my machine, for fear its been left in a damaged state.

Suggestions please
