Hi there -
I don't have the Mini, but have followed other folks on various issues. In the OS X FAQ section, you'll find some help; tips/tricks to getting Leopard installed on a 8GB SSD. Look HERE.
As for the use of an external drive, you shouldn't have any trouble using one. OS X should recognize your new volume, mount it, and you can do pretty much everything you could do on a regular Mac on the Mini - including using an external USB drive.
I read that iLife 2009 requires 4GB of space. I think you will be very happy with your Mini once all the slimming and trimming and installing is done. Let us know how it goes.
