I'm using OSM2PgSQL to load osm data into my PostGIS db. I am shortage of space and also do not need the entire data to be loaded. I only want to load osm_lines and osm_polygons. How can I configure this?

Any other import tool which would help me accomplish this would do as well.

You need to edit the default.style file to only import what you are interested in and drop the slim mode tables once you've imported. In any case you will still be initially importing nodes because they are required for building the geometries (and given that most OSM nodes are actually way nodes it is going to be nearly all of them).

With other words at least temporarily you will need more space or lots of memory to be able to run osm2pgsql in non-slim mode.
