Thank you for your response. I believe I followed the install ins-
tructions when I initially created a swap and a large root parti-
tion, but it would certainly not be the first time I have misunder-
stood directions. In any case, df -h produces:

du: `/proc/4837/task': No such file or directory
du: `/proc/4837/fd': No such file or directory
sudo du -h --max-depth=1 /var
... something doesn't seem to add up, and I'm wondering what I should
I thought I'd seen an item in one of the ubuntu guides (official/unof-
ficial) that explained how to migrate (?) stuff to a /home partition
but a quick look this afternoon hasn't turned it up.
Thanks again, and to everyone else who has participated so far. Sorry
for the delay in my own participation; we've been experiencing atypical
power-outages due to unusual weather patterns here on the left coast of
Canada. Edgy's been great, apart from the full / partition!
