    You might try JDiskReport to look at your disk space (memory is an entirely different thing). It will list the largest files as well as the largest folders on your disk.

    If you are sure that you will never use OS9, then it can be removed.

    You can free up quite a bit of disk space by removing the localization files (language support). Use Monolingual (free).

    It also may be worth using OnyX to clean up caches and logs.
