My partitioned hard drive-how to get more use out of it
Background: first, I am a nearly brand-new Linux user. I have SUSE 10.1 installed on a PC that was given to me by a friend. It has a very small (by today's standards) hard drive. I notice that when SUSE installs, it partitions my hard drive. Post-installation, I can see that I have hda6 and hda7. It seems that there are many more installed directories on hda6. Right now, hda6 is 75.7% full, and the space on hda7 is only a tiny bit used up-it seems to only have a copy of the directory that is named after my SUSE user name. I say "copy" because hda6 also has the same directory. My questions are: 1) why is there two instances of the same directory on my PC-one on hda6 and one on hda7? 2) how can I get more use out of hda7? I discovered that I can't install many at all of the 183+ updates available to me because when I start to install them, I QUICKLY get a message that says that if I download/install them, I'll be out of available hard disk space.
