I have two linux part.
/dev/hda5 that mounts /usr
/dev/hda6 that mounts /
/dev/hda5 is about 90% full and I would like to know if I can move some
dirs from /usr to the /dev/hda6

Before you buy.

No. It's a bad plan. / should be about 64MB. BTW, 90% full is nothing.
There's plenty of space. There's still 20% of the disk left (yes, you
can shrink the reserve for root down to nothing ... it's a readonly
filesystem, right, and therefore can't "fragment" any more!).
If you want to, create /usr/share as a new partition. That should take
a lot of the strain off. And /usr/X11R6 is also
traditionally a different partition, saving you 654-128MB. It is
important that /var and /home (and /opt) be separate too, but that
doesn't affect you. The only other thing you can do is be sure that
/usr/local is separate.
I've got a pretty full /usr directory and I could free up a bunch of
space by moving /usr/dt, /usr/java1.1 and /usr/share and creating
appropriate links. Near as I can tell, there's nothing essential to the
boot up process in any of these directories.
Can anybody think of any other consequences?
