	May I ask what OS version you're running?  Because on my
-CURRENT system:

huff@>> du /boot | sort -nr
151838  /boot
66596   /boot/kernel.old
66526   /boot/kernel
17810   /boot/kernel.generic
20      /boot/defaults
2       /boot/modules
2       /boot/firmware

	Su unless I'm doing sonething that causes bloat, 128mb will be
woefully inadwquate.
	The machine as a whole has two disks, a 4 gig:

Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a    484M    223M    222M    50%    /
/dev/da0s1d    989M    295M    615M    32%    /var

	plus 1 gig of swap, and a 45 gig:

/dev/da1s1d     44G     33G    7.3G    82%    /usr

	also plus 1 gig of swap.
