Hi Sorin,

It was a nearly-full install and I do connect periodically to do 
updates.  I did a yum clean all before writing to the list, with no 
significant change to the disk usage.

I will list packages next and see what can be removed safely.  I truly 
don't know what is filling the 130G...this should be more than 
sufficient as I've loaded CentOS5.x on many systems without this issue.

Thanks again for your input,
-Ray
