After attempting to help someone else on this same issue, with no success.... I went ahead and installed 10.6.0 back on my mini.
I used NBI 0.8.4 RC1 for the original install. I tried with an earlier NBI, but install failed, so I went ahead with 0.8.4...
Also, I did a custom install, and just installed the core OS.
In any case, once I had 10.6.0 installed, I did the following:
Downloaded, and ran this NBI: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/863180/Netbo...212351.app.zip
Without rebooting, I ran Software Update. I installed only the 10.6.6 package (no iTunes or security packages or anything else-- just the actual OS package).
It downloaded and installed fine. On reboot, the NBI screen came up, but didn't really take as long as previous versions. Desktop came up... everything worked fine.
After that, I went back to Software Update, and ran the rest of the updates.
Everything's working fine.
I'm guessing there'll be varying degrees of success with this update. And ultimately, you may be better off doing it one step at a time; 10.6 -- 10.6.2 -- 10.6.3 ....
In any case, however, It all worked out just fine for me.

I recently did an install of 10.6 on a new 10V for a friend, and followed the above directions and versions (see my signature). I then updated to 10.6.6 without any other updates and yes....you must just be patient, make sure the pc is plugged in and just let it go. Everything is now updated and a birthday gift has been gifted...Enjoy
