I have filled up the / partition.  a copy of fstab is below:

Is it possible to symlink /bin, /etc/, + others into the /home partition? or just use a partitioner to resize the /home? Which has the least impact on the filesystem?

Resizing /home implies resizing / also; I don't know if any of the Linux partitioning tools will do non-destructive resizing.

Another option would be to clean whatever is eating up space on /, such as old kernels and the associated /lib/modules directory.
