Thanks to everyone who responded. You were all correct: big file=no space,
and all the du, find and ls methods suggested were helpful. It turned out
there was a file in /dev/rmt that was huge. It was named 0 and was a bad
tar file of someone's .pst (MS Outlook/Exchange) file. I have no idea
where it came from, how it got there or who's it was, but its gone now.

I'm amazed at how many different methods there are to glean harvest
information using unix.

Thanks again for your help.
