I suspect that possibly someone needs to take a look at the code for asfsm
and see what's up with huge partitions.  / is being represented as
essentially a solid bar.  It also seemed to actually draw the bar to the
*left* instead of the right before I made the 650Mb iso file.  (I'm
preparing a Slackware 3.6 CD at the moment)  Spooked the heck out of me
since I had completely forgotten about the apparent rollover error until
after I started downloading the distro.  I took a look at the code, and
can't quite sort it out myself at the moment.  (ewpz.)

For those of you who haven't done it before, filling up / is typically
followed very quickly by a catatrophic system crash and near-guaranteed
filesystem corruption.  Hehehe.  (*shudder*)
