I have an EeePC with a 4 gig solid state disk that's running Debian, so 
I can offer a couple of suggestions here.

First off, install localepurge.  It will save you a lot of space by 
removing localizations you don't need.

Secondly, every apt-get command should be followed with an "apt-get 
clean cache" to delete the cached downloads and free up space.

Between these two you should be OK.  I've done some pretty large piles 
of updates on my EeePC without problems.
