I preserve 10 G for gentoo, after using it for a while, amazingly, there is only 200MB left on my hard disk,
how can I free up some spaces by deleting some unused files such as downloaed packages?

Thank you...

Please only delete /usr/portage/distfiles/* as a last resort. Also, there are utilities that can help reduce wasted space there, while not deleting everything.
