That makes more sense. Another user just sent me to a web page that describes 
that command. Your version works better, though, for my purposes. I could 
probably have found the information on those web pages, but it would have 
taken time to sift it out from other stuff. 

So I get this in my terminal: 
4.0K    /afs
11M     /bin
160M    /boot
0       /dev
57M     /etc
26G     /home
0       /initrd.img
0       /initrd.img.old
576M    /lib
4.0K    /live-build
16K     /lost+found

Nothing looks too much out of the ordinary; I already can account for 
everything in my /home directory, I think, and next biggest is /lib. So how 
does 18 gb vanish?
