It is absolutely possible to get this working without a Mac.
I recommend prepping your USB sticks (1GB for the Bootloader and 20GB for the Retail Installer) using mechdrew's guide
for creating the USB drives... you need to change the retail dmg to an iso. I've heard that "Windows Alternate 1" may be faster in getting Snow Leopard onto a USB drive. You can skip step 4 in that section since you already have an image of the Retail disc. Once you've got your Bootloader and Install USB sticks, proceed to the "Installation" section. IMPORTANT!
When it comes time to reboot back into bootloader at the "First Boot and NetbookInstaller" section, DO NOT follow step 4 using NBI 083F
... it will be incompatible with the kernel for 10.6.3 and you'll get kernel panics. Instead, once you've booted into the smaller USB stick, connect the 10v to the internet (it should be working) and download the latest working NBI here
and run NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 using the default settings with the 10v's drive as the target. You should be good to go after that.
If that all works and you want to update to 10.6.7, download the Combo Update (I don't recommend Software Update), run it and, when it's done installing, don't restart
, run NBI 20100616212351 and then
