for unix shell (its *not* 'dos mode', MSDOS is a legacy system of 
Microsoft), du is the command to use.

     du -hs /*

will give you a summary of the space used by every top level 
directory.   ignore /dev /proc and /sys as they aren't real directories, 
theya re pseudo file systems.   if it turns out, for example, that /var 
is the biggest pig, then

     du -hs /var/*

to see the totals of whats in each folder in /var

rinse, repeat...
