    found this on another forum

    The problem is how iShock software interacts with 10.3.8. iShock is looking for the controller, and if it is not plugged in it continually generates an error message that eventually builds up to huge GB. There are two solves: either keep your game controller plugged in at all times, or delete iSchock. Then in your GO menu, select Go To Folder and type in /var/log. you will see the offending file system.log. delete it, resart, make sure to empty trash again.

    I didnt read anything about ishock in the original post, so are you possibly using a swap partition on your hd if its even partitioned? have you installed any peer to peer type software such as mlmac or poisoned? the best way to find out how much space is really left, click
    apple>about this mac>click more info, in system profiler, under hardware section, click ATA, your hd will be there. what os are you running? have you recently installed any new sw or hw? and please dont use norton products, itll really screw up your mac, and if it hasnt already, it will, give it time, or uninstall asap.
