4.3 is tight on a 4GB flash disk.  You would be much better served, Marcus, in 
buying an 8GB pen-drive and installing your new OS choice on that.  I tried a 
very early KDE 4.0 by this methods with the EeePC 701 for that reason, and it 
worked very well.

Fedora offer instructions on how to set this up on a pen-drive, and I think it 
likely that other popular distros do too.
