I decided to install freebsd with 300M for the / partition just to be on the safe side. The only thing i have added since the original install is the linux compatibility and some linux apps i needed such as netscape, opera etc. Ok, now for some reason my / partition shows to be full and i cant figure it out as like i said only a few apps have been installed. It appears to me that after adding linux compatibility the / partition went to full maybe because of the syslink "compat" that was placed on my / partition by the freebsd-5.1 linux compatibility port.

Are you running netscape/opera as root?
If so check the size of the .netscape .opera directories in /root.
They can get quite big.
If not, use something like
du -d 2 | sort -n
in all directories which are living in your root partition to look for
the guilty directories.
