Then looking at "df -h", I see that my smallish / partition (463MB) is full, so I've got to see what's eating up that space (I think it's because a new kernel was automagically installed - somehow or 'nuther it seems when I installed Debian on this box the default install installed whatever kernel package automatically pulls in the latest version of that kernel rather than leaving it fixed until I specifically specify an upgrade. I'm not quite sure how to "fix" that. And I don't really want to have to reboot yet to activate the newest .point upgrade so I can remove the older one taking up disk space. I should've made my / partition twice as large as I did, I reckon.)

the kernel meta-packages are called linux-image-2.6-<arch> and those
are the ones that pull in the most recent kernel. remove those
meta-packages to "fix" it (quite literally)...

Thank you. Fixed.
