Eep! :)

Yep.  I did that with my dad's PC.  I'm keeping the 1.1GB HDD as the main
system (since I didn't want to reinstall), and shoved "/home" and "/usr"
onto a 40GB drive.  Plenty of room to install new apps (they'll land in
'usr') and for dad's files (in 'home', of course).

One thing I've found handy is:

  du -s * | sort -n

...it gives you a summary of the contents (in size) of all subfolders
in the current folder, with the largest listed at the bottom.

(Throw a ".*" along in there too if you're interested in hidden
directories.  e.g., if you're running this command from a user's homedir)
