This is a new one for me.  I decided to do a manual update on my 8.1 
box, starting with csup.  Buildworld went fine, as did buildkernel.  
However, when I tried to install the new kernel installkernel choked 
with an error message telling me that it could not proceed because the 
root partition was full.  What!  I did a df and sure enough the root 
partition was overloaded.  When I installed the system I used 
sysinstalls recommended sizes for the root partion, which is around 
10G.  Anyway, when I rebooted, the system rebooted into single user 
mode, and that is presently where I stand.  I have no idea how to 
proceed at this point, and would appreciate any help in fixing this.  Of 
course, I smell a newbie type error in all of this, but haven't quite 
figured out where I went wrong.
