[jeff@mandrake jeff]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda6 2.1G 1.6G 379M 81% /
none 158M 0 158M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 2.6G 2.0G 600M 78% /mnt/win_c
/dev/hdb1 112G 105G 7.3G 94% /mnt/win_c2
/dev/hda5 107M 7.9M 99M 8% /mnt/win_d


I got about 379M left on my partition so I think I will be alright for awhile.
