system disks

When I am installing patches (or OS upgrades), I run out of disk space on the partition which it is trying to install on.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a way to make the system think there is more space (I do have free space on other partitions)?

I know there is a way mount another file system and do a link.
I just don't know the exact formula to get this to work.
