I just found "diskfree":

However, it requires KDE 3.4 and the machine where the tool is needed runs KDE 
3.3.  Nevertheless I tried installing it on a KDE 3.3 system: The 
installation process went smoothly.  However, when I start the applet, then I 
get the following error message:

  Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
  klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'devices'.

Any idea whether this is really due to the lack of version 3.4, or whether the 
reason for the error message may be something else?
