Your kernel tree is huge-- on a 6.x system, that's normally around  
25MB.  If you have a /boot/kernel.old, you can delete that, but you  
should double-check whether you've specified non-default compiler  
flags or something which might cause this.  Also, if you've deleted  
things like old logfiles without restarting the daemons or syslogd,  
you might want to reboot and then recheck the disk usage...
