	You didn't say how big your root partition was. The common setup
appears to be about a 10 MB root partition, to include the bootable kernel,
/bin, /sbin, /dev, and /etc. Put /usr (and maybe /var and /tmp) on separate
filesystems, then mount them at boot time. My uVax II is set up like this,
and I run with about 1-2 MB free on the root partition - plenty enough room
to make a new version of the kernel or two.
