Hi There,

> I have 8Gb free disk space. What should I do?

1) Work out where Postgres is storing the database
 - on my RH 7.1 + Postgres 7.2.2 it's in /var/lib/pgsql

2) Work out what partition that is in
 - in /var for me

3) Do a `df' to see how much space is left on that partition

You can have terabytes of space on a disk left over, but still run out
of space in a user defined partition.
