Copying files to a 'full' Linux drive

    I have just got a new laptop, with Vista on - first time I have used it
    properly :eek:

    It looks great... but it's ashame M$ prioritized on aesthetics and left
    the whole useability thing out.

    /rant, I'm posting because of an annoying problem. I have a Kubuntu
    box on the network, and I mapped an network drive to it in Vista. The
    hard drive which has Kubuntu installed on it is about 5GB, and that's
    what Vista sees it as. If I try copying files to an external HD on the
    Kubuntu machine, via the mapped network drive in Vista, it refuses to
    do so: 'Not enough room' (the 5GB drive is full, the external isn't)

    XP does not do this; I presume Vista checks to see if there is enough
    room and if not cancels the transfer whereas XP stops when there is no
    more room..

    Is there any way to turn off this check?

    Thanks in advance!
