Unfortunately reboot has not worked. Here is an output of df:
# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2            155535144 154447032         0 100% /
/dev/hda1               101089      9798     86072  11% /boot
/dev/hdb2            156436456 115234572  33255332  78% /mythtv

There 2 160 gig drives. The first holds boot and / and no other
partitions. Maybe / should have had it's own partition, but that's
another topic. Still can't figure out why it says all the space is used,
when it isn't. 

Any other suggestions or info I should provide?
