Not necessarily, but sometimes what appears to be a folder on one partition is really a partition on another drive. For example, I have a 2 drive set up: The first drive is the / partition containing all the system directories (folders) including /home; but /home is not a true directory (folder) but the "mount point" for a partition on the second drive which is the actual "home". In this case, the /home folder is a partition. It isn't always.
To help with your problem, need to know how your drive is configured for Linux. Post the output of the following three commands.
You might be able to use something like gparted to resize your partitions to get more space on your / partition.
Also, please only post plain ascii test here. Thanks.
