Get into the command line as root. Go to the root / directory and use 'du -hs *'. That will list all the directories under the root / directory and their size.
Disregard /var, /tmp, and /home - since they're on separate partitions. The rest all added together will compromise that 1.8Gig shown in use for the root / directory's partition.
Now, you've got to figure out what's eating up that space - and if you can delete any of it to free up space. That's a hard one. If you don't have a bunch of files in /root or something 'non-system' like that - its going to be hard to free up space safely.
But I've also go to mention - you've got a pretty small installation space to work with! I usually won't set up less than 4 or 5 Gig for the root partition. The default for BlueOnyx is 6Gig. So your 1.9Gig is a tiny amount of space for the operating system, all programs in /usr, all configurations in /etc, and everything else (besides /var, /tmp, /home). You just didn't allow sufficient space for that root / partition on the hard drive.
