And for note, since someone is bound to ask, the partition schema I don't appreciate is that it puts all of my space for /var/lib vs the entire system, so, should i choose to actually *do* something with the system other than myth I have to think on my toes...

gremelin@mediacenter:~# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 12G 1.9G 8.7G 18% /
tmpfs 628M 0 628M 0% /lib/init/rw
varrun 628M 412K 628M 1% /var/run
varlock 628M 0 628M 0% /var/lock
udev 628M 208K 628M 1% /dev
tmpfs 628M 0 628M 0% /dev/shm
lrm 628M 2.4M 626M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/volatile
/dev/sda6 687G 106G 581G 16% /var/lib

So, the "home" directory has 8gb space...

Normally, Ubuntu would accredit all of the space to one large partition, which seems messy but works for just about anything:
gremelin@gremelin-desktop:~# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 36G 5.0G 29G 15% /
tmpfs 249M 0 249M 0% /lib/init/rw
varrun 249M 112K 249M 1% /var/run
varlock 249M 0 249M 0% /var/lock
udev 249M 140K 249M 1% /dev
tmpfs 249M 92K 249M 1% /dev/shm
lrm 249M 2.4M 246M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/volatile
/dev/fd0 1.4M 0 1.4M 0% /media/disk
