how to free up 253 megs?

Linux infant here, advancing through crawl now after rolling around crying for awhile--just trying to set up my first desktop.

Fresh fedora 18 install on a 75 gig drive, partitions are set up as 5 gig swap, 5 gig root (was suggested to go with 4-8 for root) and the rest as home. Can't install wine due to insufficient space on root, and thats where the 253 megs comes from.

What I've done since installing: Kernal update and reboot

Installed for nvidia drivers the following: yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs

(yes kmod, akmod didn't work for me and I don't write my own kernal anyway so I'll just deal with reinstalling after updates)

Installed adobe reader

Installed vlc media

And thats it. Wine was too big. Oh, I removed the old kernal when I saw that both were still in there, rebooted, and it didn't help.

Suggestions? Oh, if this helps heres some output requested from another forum before anyone can ask: These commands were run after entering the root password

Ok I dont have karma to post links, can I even post the question?
