Do you have everything under the sun installed? :-)
If not, it's possible there is something in /var that's sucking down
way more space than it should be (an unrotated log or a ton of stuff
in /var/cache that could be deleted).

GNU parted can extend ext2 and ext3 partitions (among others). So you
could expand the current root partition to use the 10GB one after it.
But perhaps you're using LVM. I don't think that parted can handle
that (might be worth checking though, I haven't looked in a while).

What about a 3rd option? You could find the largest directory and
then move it to one of the 10GB partitions.
