Couple of pieces of advice here:
* You should have some way of making system backups anyway. If you have
a CD or DVD writer, or a USB pen/disk, or something else on the local
network, your first priority should be to get those important
documents saved onto the backup medium!
To do this, you might want to get a bootable Linux CD. I understand
that Knoppix / Gnoppix and the Ubuntu boot CD are very polished these
days, and should help you back up your system.
* Check /usr/tmp is empty. If not, I'd move it to /usr/tmp2 and check
it out later:
ls -a /usr/tmp
mv /usr/tmp /usr/tmp2
Then create a symlink like this
ln -s ../var/tmp tmp
Hope this helps,
