Resize a file with a size of 0

I setup a new computer with Fedora 4 and tried to transfer some files from my old computer to my new one and put them in folder /net. I get a error message saying theres no room. The file has a size of 0. I haven't ran into this before and having trouble finding a way to resize that folder. Any help would be appreciated.

Kinda all my peripherals working, wireless, cd burner etc and worked out all the bugs. Was able to redo my .bashrc and .bash_profile but I can't RESIZE A FRIGGIN FOLDER!!!

can you please post the output of :
I have the feeling that maybe you have multiple partitions and /usr may be large but / may be small.
