Ok, one thing to do if you are running out of space is partition the new
disk and make it your /usr
For that you will have to copy the files from existing /usr partition onto
a new partition you create, and change the /etc/fstab so that at boot you
mount a new disk instead of old one. The old partition can be utilized for
something else later.
Also, I have about 72MB of free space left on the current disk. Add to that

Hmm, you got about 440M total space.
Filesystem 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/hdb2 198123 95724 92168 51% /
/dev/hda1 1029872 960624 69248 93% /windows
/dev/hdc1 574626 216321 328621 40% /usr
I have about 300M used up, add 90M swap to that, and I am running X,
Netscape, gcc, got kernel source installed, etc.
So you got enough space with that new disk.
