In my opinion, what will it hurt if you give it a try. It will either work or it will not work.
If it works with A06 then you save yourself the trouble of having to downgrade the BIOS. If it does not work, then you start at square 1 and downgrade the BIOS...
I assume you have a machine to make preparations for BIOS downgrades and whatnot...

My installation didn't work with A06 BIOS as the installer crashed few times and only 3rd attempt it finnished the base installation of 10.5.6. Then it crashed when again during I applied combo update 10.5.8 every time (around 5 times). Then I tried the netbookInstaller on safe mode but again OSX crashed during applying it... I went to square 1 and downgraded the BIOS to 04 and since that all has been going smoothly without any crash.
I used the mechdrew guide.

My HW in 10v is with 1GB mem, 160GB HD, Bluetooth enabled.
Kudos to mechdrew!
