Can you post the output of "du -csh /*". Run the command as root, without the quotes. How much extra stuff did you install? I just put Mandriva Sping 2008 on my laptop on a 10GB root partition, added a bunch of extra software, and it only takes up about 3GB or so.
Perhaps your /tmp or /var directories are filling up with stuff for some reason.
I have put Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, Zenwalk, Mandriva, Fedora, Frugalware on this laptops 10GB root partition and they have never taken up more than 4-5 GB at the most.
