"I have tried to change Disto but i haven't enough room on my netbook to do so... "

What is your priority -- changing distros or preserving data?

If the first,

PHP Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=1M 
entered at the Terminal as root will get you all the room your hard drive has free, to install whatever distro you choose.
