That was the ticket. / is back down to 48%. Though when I 'sh MAKEDEV st0'
in /dev I get the error: st0 - no such device name. Thanks.

[It seems that you have used some sort of backup tool to save one or
[more backups to /dev/st0 before creating an st0 device node.  Since
[you are root, you're allowed to create normal files under /dev.  Just
[delete this huge st0 file and create a real device node for it:
[       # cd /dev
[       # sh MAKEDEV st0
[then rerun your backup thingie to save the data to a real tape and not
[a file on disk.

[I don't use CPAN, but I'd probably move /root/.cpan someplace else and
[symlink to it, just in case useful data is still in there.
