Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok...I am a complete Linux Newbie. I am using Linux Red Hat 2.6.9-42.ELsmp
We have Nimbus setup to help monitor our servers and I am getting an error that free disk space on / is at 0%. Not sure how I can see what to delete. I tried running du -ks /* | sort -nr | head (found this in another post) and these are the results.
Thank you for all the help guys. I am looking into this more. In /data I found a /jackrabbit directory and have been told this is esential for our application to run. I am still investigating /database.
[root@IMPENTBEA /]# df -h

The above drive seems to be the only one at capacity.
This partition contains the root directory "/" and probable contains the /tmp folder.
many applications use the temp folder and will not start if it is not writable or full. try deleting every thing in this folder as root.
that should free up enough room to boot the system.
I noticed that your using LVM you should be able to shrink your barely used /home or other partition and reallocate the free space to VolGroup00-LogVol00. That would permanently increase the space available on "/".
