I read this as:  you have one big partition sharing "/root/" and
"/var/spool/", is this correct?  If so, I'd advise against it:  news
spools are typical for using more inodes on average for the many small
files they hold.  The same holds true for a number of files in
/var/spool/.  If possible, consider making separate partitions for "/",
"/home", "/usr", "/var" and possibly some more, like maybe "/boot".
Also, double the number of inodes for "/var".  An alternative is using
a volume manager (LVM), which can make things more complex.  I'm no
expert on this topic, though.
