After learning how to resize LV's so that I can have space for another drive(I wanted to test Edubuntu, and K12LTSP 5EL) I find that on my 140GB drive(5 36GB SAS RAID) I only have 24GB left. I'm only using the server for terminals so *what can I do to hunt down the source of all this used space?* Home directories are on a different server, even though local ones are being made for local settings. Over 500 different people have logged into the Server, could that be a problem? Thanks for the help.
Here's a receipe I use to find disk hogs.  Apply repeatedly from the top 
("/") down.  At each level it will show the largest disk usage.  You 
should quickly be able to tell where your disk space has gone.

du -s /* | sort -nr | head
