A lot depends on how much space you've got left on the various slices.
For example, you could fdisk the hda1 to a Linux partition and move hda6
It's really hard to say unless we know what is on each partition. I
assume hda5 is either / or /boot, so say we leave it alone. You could
change hda1 to a linux partition copy all of say, /usr to it, then
change your /etc/fstab to reflect the new /usr. This should free up a
lot of space on hda6. Just one example.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
