[mythtv-users] MythTV causing System to break down!

as only an intermediate level linux user I was able to set up MythTV
and customize it to my liking.
However recently I got hunted by this "mysterious" phenomenon, after
a certain amount of time MythTV stops recording and all recorded
shows are deleted, which is really weird.
After seeing this I realized that the problem is that my dev/hda2 is
running out of diskspace.
I partitioned my 160GB Disk like this:
dev/hda1 /boot 100MB ext3
dev/hda2 / 10GB ext3
dev/hda3 /swap 512MB swap
dev/hda5 /video 140GB jfs
the dev/hda2 only holds a minimal amount of packages from the Fedora
Core 5 installation, so it shouldn't be anywhere close to 10GB, of
course it holds the user folders and therefore some of the MythTV
files are on it, so I am guessing that it must be log files or
something like that that blow it up.
So my questions are:
1) how can I find which files MythTV is saving here to blow up disk
2) how could I move everything MythTV related to /video (which I
probably won't be able to do, because Im not really familiar with MySQL
3) obviously I cant get in X right now so how do i do everything from
the command line?
well I now that this is a noob question, but I tried my very best to
figure everything out myself, and Ive been stuck with this for 2
days, and I just cant figure out how to solve this
