I've now got my plug running Lenny and using a 30GB external 2.5" SSD as the boot/main filesystem. It's pretty great. I followed Martin's excellent instructions at

http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/unpack.html

to get Lenny up and running.  For the SSD I bought an OCZ SATA II 2.5" 30GB SSD and a Nextstar 2.5" case from Newegg for a total of about $150 and now have a completely solid state system.

That's a really good howto.  Thanks for posting the link.

Why didn't you just toss $30 at the problem and put a 16 SD card in there and run off that ?

Just to be sure, you SSD is alimented by the USB port ? or has it's own alimentation source ?
For the moment I'm using a 4GB USB thumb drive, but it's bit limited...
