4 above updates is safe to install. I have installed all these without any problems, no need to run NBI again. You can easily update to 10.6.4 : **OFFICIAL** Mac OS X 10.6.4 Update Thread

I poked around the Apple forum and learned a lot.
I was worried about the updates listed in SU specifically in relation to the working of SL on our mini which, obviously, I didn't find at the Apple forum.
Here's a brief summary of what I read about the updates -
iLife support 9.0.4 caused folks a lot of trouble whether they had iLife or not. Turned out not to be a much recommended update - though I know on Apple it's mostly the ones who have trouble that are writing (Since this update is not yet on the support download page though it came out six months ago, there was some discussion at MacRumor and Apple about why Apple hadn't pulled the update from SU).
Airport Base Station update - not necessary to do if you don't have a base station
Remote Desktop Client update - ditto
I've learned over the years with our 5 Macs that some updates are unnecessary and can even result in issues. It's not necessarily the case that every suggested update needs or has to be done.

A bit OT perhaps but I'm running 10.6.2 and NBI 0.8.3 and I haven't done any updates in quite some time. Is it OK to update via Apple's software update these days? I've been using my real mac for awhile as I replaced its broken screen but I'd like to get my mini 10V back up to spec...

OS updates are not ok to install automatically - read the stickies in the General section. If you want 10.6.4, run the updated NBI in post 67 of the 10.6.4 thread.
