Well lets see:
(tigger pts2) $ ll -h *8
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         505K May 12 12:15 System.map-2.4.20-13.8
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          44K May 12 12:15 config-2.4.20-13.8
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          15K May 12 12:15 module-info-2.4.20-13.8
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3.0M May 12 12:15 vmlinux-2.4.20-13.8
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1.1M May 12 12:15 vmlinuz-2.4.20-13.8

The above alone looks like more than 3.6 megs. Suggest deleting an old kernel
if you can.
