We are running out of room for files in our Document Libraries and need to know where uploaded files in doc libraries are on the actual server and how to move the storage location to another partition on the server.

Your uploaded files are stored in the content database which is why you cannot find them in the file system.  

If you are running out of storage space, you may need to consider an additional site collection or other site expansion options assuming you are running MOSS2007 or SP2010 standard or better servers.  Assuming you are running SQL Server on the same machine as your SP2010 environment, moving SQL Server to a separate server with more drive space would also help.

you might also look into changing the Recovery Model on your sharepoint sql database.  by default, it is set to Full, which often makes for a huge transaction log.

Just to make sure we understand the question correctly. Are you getting a quota warning? As in that case you can just ask your administrator to increase your quota.
