Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have differnt partions for all. There is space on disk but I think not in the parition for the image. I don't know but I think there are old Images. Is it possible to delete them and how?

Thanks! I have got the answer. I have removed with aptitude the kernel 2.6.18-6-686 and 2.6.18-4-686
Now I have enough disk space. Than I have installed
linux-image 2.6.26-libre2-1-686 because I thought that libre use a little less disk space. What do you think is libre stabil?
yes the libre kernel would likely be smaller. and if you don't run into any issues with devices not working due to missing firmware, you should be good to go.
From what I can see it looks like the libre kernel has all the non-free binary firmware blobs removed from it. Debian is working towards this in their mainline kernels, but it's a slow process.
When you uninstalled those kernels did you also go through your system looking for any old initrd.img or vmlinuz files sitting in /boot that you no longer need ? and did you check /usr/src for header files left over from the kernel versions you removed ?
I always do a manual check since purging the old kernels doesn't necessarily remove everything.
