du -sk *
at the base of the file system (root in this case) where the problem is.
Then cd in to suspicious directories - those that look excessively big
and run du again
Keep following bloated directories until you find your problem.
I would guess you have logs (var/log) and mail (/var/mail) still in root
and maybe even /tmp but who knows until you track it down a little better.
You may need to either revise your disk layout or at least
move some thing to a bigger partition and make symlinks.
