/: write failed, filesystem is full

I'm trying to install FreeBSD 7.0 on our new server (Intel Xeon 2x4- 
core machine), which has a 250GB SATAII disk. I used -bootonly CD  
image, and assigned whole disk to FreeBSD. Breakdown is:
/ - 2GB
swap - 4GB
/var - 9GB
/tmp - 4GB
/usr - 213GB

As soon as I start copying files from FTP, this is the error I get:
/: write failed, filesystem is full

This shouldn't happen, since sysinstall did newfs on these partitions.

What to do?

I'll now try to run livefs disk, to see what is happening there.
