lenny repos on eeepc 900

Hi Guys,

I am posting my repos here because I want to have your opinions on it. I get a lot of updates and I only have a 16G ssd internal. I feel like it is going to file up fast.
Should I use apt-pinning to limit the number of updates ?
I would gladly take any input from you Guys.

deb lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny/updates main contrib non-free

##lenny security
deb lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny/updates main contrib non-free

##lenny debian-marillat
deb lenny main
deb-src lenny main

##eeepc repository
deb lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny main contrib non-free
deb sid main contrib non-free
deb-src sid main contrib non-free

thank you,

I run sid on my 701 with kde and lxde installed my install is only 1.8GB. Try running apt-get clean after doing updates, there haven't been very many updates with Lenny frozen.
