distribution?
You can clean out /var/log/
If you have multiple kernels, remove the old ones.
To find large files on your system
Code:
find / -type f -size +200M
if it's debian based, you can do
Code:
apt-get clean
to delete the downloaded deb files.

nothing even over 25MB.
----edit----

/mnt/hdb1/linux-2.6.31.4.tar.bz2
/proc/kcore
find: /proc/7897/fd/4: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/libxul.so
