I created the following setup when I installed FreeBSD 2.2.2:

32M	/
30M	/var
390M	/home
515M	/usr
63M	/swap

The 32M / was recommended by the setup itself. However, now I have almost no
space on / because of the /compat crap. Here is the output of a df:

Filesystem  1K-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on                    
/dev/wd0a       31775    28671      562    98%    /                             
/dev/wd0s1f    386655     9901   345822     3%    /home                         
/dev/wd1s1e    511583   381576    89081    81%    /usr                          
/dev/wd0s1e     29727     2124    25225     8%    /var                          
(THAT is a moused bug, it was not double spaced!)

Anyhow, if I make a symbolic link /tmp -> /var/tmp, is that OK? Also, can I
just rm -rf parts of the /usr/src tree I don't need? I haven't installed any-
thing and I'm already 81% (lie, i installed some packages).
