Fund it! Unbelievable. A few weeks ago I was moving files between hard
disks that I was connecting/ disconnecting from the machine. I had a
temp_files folder in root set up for the purpose- and I forgot to
delete it when I finished the last batch! 5 GB of pictures in there...
now the system is a little cleaner:
# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2             11535344   3842352   7107024  36% /
tmpfs                   128388         0    128388   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs                   128388     12588    115800  10%
/lib/modules/2.6.12-10-386/volatile
/dev/hda6              6965472   2107212   4504432  32% /home

Thanks, all. Sorry for the noise- stupid mistake on my part.
