[Changes: Proper subject and step 5 should be to remove /opt.tmp]
> Ok, my problem was my partition was at 98% and I couldn't install any

> 1) Copy a directory tree to the /space partition. I choosed /opt because

> 2) mv /opt /opt.tmp
> 3) ln -s /space/opt /opt
> 4) Reboot and make sure everything still worked.
> 5) If everything works, rm -r /opt.tmp
> For me, that brought my utilization down to 50%!
> Special thanks to Erin and everyone else that was kind enough to give me
