New Ubuntu install, gave it 25GB, updates say I only have 3MB free. Help!
 
I'm not sure what's up with this. 25Gigs should be more than enough for updates and software. I also have windows XP on this computer. Please let me know how to fix this!

I'm not sure what you mean.

Open a terminal (gnome-terminal, or konsole, or xterm) and type the command "df -h". For example, here is the result when I do this in my terminal:

Code:

mark@debian:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              36G  17G  18G  48% /
tmpfs                189M    0  189M  0% /lib/init/rw
udev                  10M  712K  9.4M  7% /dev
tmpfs                189M    0  189M  0% /dev/shm
mark@debian:~$

"dev/hda1" is my hard-drive (or "C-drive" in Windows talk). On my 36G drive, I've used 17G (48%).
