You cannot boot from the SDHC slot. You can install programs there, though some programs object to being installed on a "removable" drive.

That seems way too small to me for such a thing. No such thing as a "really cheap" SSD.

16GB: $63 for one with decent performance, $50 for one that is slow. Newegg (where I am looking) doesn't sell 8GB models.

You need a MiniPCIe, PATA, 50mm. If it doesn't specifically say it is compatible with the Mini 9, look elsewhere.

Will i note the difference on windows xp (I've read that every card is slow on windows xp), or will I note the difference running 7 or ubuntu. thanks
does the SSD comes with warranty? or am I required to buy the 2 years warranty. ( cannot find the warranty on product details.. thanks)
