What temporary space does aptitude use?

When aptitude is upgrading a system, it first downloads a whole lot of 
packages into cache, and then installs them.  This means there has to be 
enough disk spoace somewhere for both the old system and the downloaded 

I need to ensure that I reserve enough space for the lenny->squeeze 

In which file system does it place this probably huge cache?

Is there other temporary space usage I need to watch out for?
