what´s taking up all this space on my hdd?

It is important to create partitions in the following order:
/dev/hda1 primary
/dev/hda2 primary
/dev/hda3 primary
/dev/hda4 extended (placeholder for the logical partitions)
/dev/hda5 logical
(I am not quite sure how many logical partitions, but it is possible to create 
even more)

I have had some problems (not the same) long time ago, when I did not create 
partitions in above order, so it could be a reason - just a suggestion!
