Hard drive at 90%, need to clean up

Im running Fedora core 3 on a 40 gig HD with KDE,
I have a second HD with 120 gigs I use for storage.
Everything I download is on the second hard drive. mp3, movies, images etc.

The only thing I have in the first Hard drive is apps and compilers and python, Crossover office with photoshop, stuff like that.
Is thier any way I can remove stuff I don't need to make more room?
What don't I need any more?

I already got rid of my logs, temp files and did a "yum clean all"
Which all together brought my space down 3%
Whats next to remove?

You can run "du" on directories to see how much space they take up. Generally a full Linux installation shouldn't take more than a few gigs.
