bob, check your saved messages from about a month ago.  i think jeff, micah
or perhaps mark posted a message about using "du" to find where disk space

in any event, check out the man page for du.

17 Jan: ABC quotes Bush as saying he's considering a challenge of Roe v Wade.
22 Jan: President Bush's first act is to stop funding to organizations which
"promote" abortion.  He's also trying to reverse the decision on RU-486.
Keep in mind, he'll probably get to pick 4 supreme court justices.
