Create or edit
/et/apt/preferences

Code:
Package: libc6
Pin: version xxxx
Pin-Priority: 1001
To find the current installed version

Code:
apt-cache show libc6

I don't think this will eat much diskspace though.

Mostly /usr/share/doc
contains a lot of files, and they are not really needed.
You can use google if you want docs.

What is /mnt/hdb1 actually mounted as... 600MB sounds a bit small but I guess if it's DSL should be big enough...
