Please change your thread title to something more descriptive than "Help Please." It will be more likely to attract readers who can help you.

The problem seems pretty obvious from the error message. Use a Linux CD and run df -h command to get some info for starters.

+1 for yancek; I must have been typing in my sleep. Try booting to a Live CD and checking the actual space usage on the hard drive. If you don't have one handy, try Knoppix.
