I believe the gizmodo article is now considered out of date, but would still work if you used the exact same components.
if you haven't tried one of these guides then give it a try:

Ya have to follow these to the letter. The USB drive has to be a single partition, sounds like maybe you didn't do that? You are using retail disks and not downloaded images right? I'm not policing you, could care less, but it often makes a difference. What version of SL do you have? I would use SL if you have it, stop at 10.6.2, and use Netbookinstaller 8.3Final.

I installed and...well, look at my sig, I don't really know anything about 10.5.x, so I can't help you there. For some reason when I used dd, the install failed every time; I re-wrote it ~5 times; the install still failing each time. Then I tried Disk Utility and that cleared it up.
What errors are you getting, what's going on when you try to boot?
I'm thinking your problem is in using multiple partitions on the USB stick; when you write the image to the stick it already has multiple partitions. DD is made to write over entire volumes; not partitions.
