Chill out, you're probably not out of space.Do a fsck ont ehpartition when you have a chance too. Your metadata might be damaged. Happened to me.
What more than likely is happening is that you're out of inodes or file allocation units. 'df -i' will show allocation totals and usage.
This happens a lot if you have many mant small files, such as in the case where you have a mail server with very many mails in queue. Give that a go, and investigate from there.

I have a fileserver which runs FC2. Recently, the system keep telling me
that the partition for / has no space left. I use the command "df" to
check things up. This is the result:
[root fileserver /]# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 20641788 20423212 0 100% /
Especially check /tmp, /var/tmp and /var/log, whether there is huge content filling the partition.
