Default OSX on Mini 9 8GB SSD - 02-25-2010, 03:07 AM

Would someone who navigates this forum better than me please find a guide on how to install SL 10.6.1 on a Mini 9 with an 8GB hard drive?

I have a triple boot 10v but am not finding an easy (and free) way to trim OSX to replace Ubuntu on this 9 that only has 7.6 GB available after the format. Trying the FAT32 10.5 trick doesn't seem to work with 10.6.

The easiest way I found is to install OS X to an external hard drive or flash drive connected to the Mini 9, strip down the install, then clone it to the internal 8GB SSD. I'm currently typing this post off my 8GB equipped Mini 9 running 10.6.2.

Do a search for 8GB install, I know there's a post or two on how to do it somewhere here. I found it a few months back...
