Might not be. I have a brand new install here of 7.0 Release (I did build a 
second kernel), and df is reporting my '/' is 267M. I have /usr and /var 
(not /tmp) mounted elsewhere. My /tmp is only using 10K right now, and /home 
has nothing but .cshrc et al so if you want a backup kernel you may need more 
than 256M.  

Did the install yesterday so there is no cruft yet...
