    You download OmniDiskSweeper for example, install it properly (Installing Applications in Mac OS X), then open it from the Applications folder or via Spotlight (CMD+SPACEBAR), then select your internal HDD (called "Macintosh HD" by default, unless you changed it) and let it scan. That will show you where the big files and folders are.

    If you mean a standard installation of Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7, then it is less than 10GB.
