WoW I got tons or replies thank you everybody.
I was able to solve what was taking up all the space
under /.
There were two directories that someone created that 
had over 200mb of data in them. 

There were many suggestions on what commands to use.
This is the one that I used that pointed me to the problem.

du -dk / | sort -n > /tmp/rootspace
Thanks to Darren for this one.

Here are others that people suggested

find / -type f -mtime -1
du -sk /* | sort -n
du -hs * | sort
du -sk /*
find / -xdev -type f -mtime 0 -ls
find . -name core -ok rm -f '{}' ';'
find / -type f -size +5000000c -print
