I was installing a boot splash when i got this message

//////////////////////
o Creating initramfs image..
mv: writing «/boot/fbsplash-livecd-2007.0-1024x768»: There is no space
left on the device.
//////////////////////

I was surprised so I checked the /boot partition

/////////////////////
tux boot # ls -l
total 6939
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       1 may  2 20:26 boot -> .

////////////////////

Here I just have ~7Mb.
Inside /boot/grub I have much less than 1Mb.

Since the boot partition has 40Mb, why does my system say that is full
if I only see less than 8Mb?

////////////////////
tux grub # df -h | grep boot
/dev/hdc1              40M   40M     0 100% /boot
////////////////////

Thanks in advance.

Richard.
