it's definitely true. USB using a MAC is by far the easiest way. i have just now completed an alternate method without a MAC, and it worked like a charm. but much more involved. i've been thinking about making a vid for this install, but wasn't sure if it's really anything anyone would want anymore.
here's what i used:
10v w/ bios A06, came with windows XP home.
*External DVD Drive*
OS X 10.6.3 Retail
Sandisk Cruzer 16 gig -for OS X Install DVD
128 MB SD card- NBI
Netbook Installer 0.8.4 RC 1 from http://www.mediafire.com/?nmnzhmnkzyz
CloneCD to make .iso from the OS X Install DVD,
(note, change the extension from .iso to .img once you've created the file)
Transmac to make the bootable USBs
Get both CloneCD and Transmac from download.com -- both free trial versions.
Once you've made your bootable USBs, (in my case -OS X Install DVD- on the 16 gig, and NBI on the 128 MB SD) install goes pretty smoothly.
everything was done using only my mini, because i wanted to see that it could be done this way. ripping and copying os x took a long time, i imagine if you used a faster pc, you could shave some of that time off.
