It'd be a good idea to have the seat tube scrubbed of rust. I'm having a brain fart on the name of the bit, but it's more or less steel wool on a rod. That may let ya get the seat post further into the frame.

If you're hacksawing the post shorter as jyl mentioned, be sure the post goes an inch or two below the seat-stay and top tube junction.

Also as jyl said, accurate sizing is important. Having a post .2mm too small is a lot.
