Maybe you can use 'du -sh *' in / to look, where the space is gone.
Mostly you can have /var/log filled with some logs etc.
What filesystem do you use? And perhaps the output of du, df and
mount might be interesting :-)
You can try to run fsck to check if your filesystem is corrupted
(maybe its a good idea to do so from a boot disk).
