Agreed. Other minor suggestions to the OP: check the contents of /root, and move anything large that can live elsewhere and create a symlink. And somethings can just be deleted: if root uses <preferred web browser> two or three times a year, then a large cache is probably superfluous. Look for any ".core" files, which can usually be deleted. It is my understanding that - providing /tmp is on a separate partition - / should receive very little traffic, and the size should stabilize quickly.
