You can use QtParted on knoppix to resize the partition if there is enough free space on the disk.

Ya we need to know more about your situation before we can help.
Post the output of

Code:
fdsik -l /dev/hda
here. Of course the info about other disks(hdb, hdc, etc) is needed, too, if you have them.

Help us help you.

You can try "localepurge" to removed the unwanted locale for the language you don't use. It will also remove some man pages in other languages.
Yesterday i recovered 100 to 200 MB

As you don't give your distribution , I can't tell you which it exists for yours or on a website.
It is a bash shell script.

If by luck you're on debian:
Code:
apt-get install localepurge
and then it is automagically launched every upgrade you make.

Check your /tmp directory. If you've been burning any cds there could be some temporary disc images left in there.

Also check the size of your /var/log/system and messages files and maybe others). If you don't have them configured (via cron) to rotate and reset they'll get very large very fast.

You can also move some directory to your other partition, if it readable/writable.
I had the same problem so I decided to move some big directories:
  • /usr/share/doc is now on a separate partition.
  • /usr/src is now poiting to /home/src because my /home is on another partition

Code:
cd /usr/share
mv doc /otherdisk/
ln -s /otherdisk/doc .
