How are your systems partitioned? Is there only the root / slice or do you have separate /usr and /var slices as well? The output from "df -k" would be useful.

No Hijack

I'm having a similar problem on AIX 4.3 but I cannot seem to identify why or whats filling up the space. Are you having any luck?

find is your friend, for finding files belonging to root only with size > 1k:
find / -type -xdev -size +1024 -exec ls -l {} \;

/ is full

check /var for *.dump and delete
you can also delete vmcore files if AIX

It has been my experiece that the smit log and shell histories sneak up growing very large and numerous over time. Also, do you have automated processes that cleanup or archive key files such as passwd by making copies? It could easily be one very large file or a huge number of little files once thought innocuous.

Good luck. I'd be interested in what you find.
