Default How and where do i remove old kernel images to make space for new ones :o)

Hi all,

I'm doing my daily apt-get update and updating my
kernal-image is reporting the following.


Unpacking replacement linux-image-2.6.18-6-686 ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.18-6-686_2.6.18.dfsg.1-18etch3_i386.deb
(--unpack):
failed in buffer_write(fd) (9, ret=-1): backend
dpkg-deb during
`./lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/kernel/net/bridge/netfilter/ebt_dnat.ko':
No space left on device


df -alh says


Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 250M 216M 21M 92% /
tmpfs 173M 0 173M 0%
/lib/init/rw
proc 0 0 0 - /proc
sysfs 0 0 0 - /sys

/dev/hda6 2.8G 2.4G 234M 92% /usr
/dev/hda7 1.3G 323M 909M 27% /var
binfmt_misc 0 0 0 -
/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc


as can be seen,

/dev/hda5 250M 216M 21M 92% /

is a bit full

or could it be /usr that's causing the problems.

I'm not sure what to delete safely


Many thanks

Ken
