USB method that i put together for someone else
Use USBPrep8 to create the bootable USB stick (i had issues running this under Vista, worked best under XP)
Instructions for USBPrep9 here > Installing Win XP Pro via UFD (Universal Flash Device)
Once complete download my Drivers+apps+misc (99mb) file or go to dells site and download them all individually as my download includes the ericsson 3g software
copy over the Drivers+apps+misc folder you downloaded over to the USB stick
Boot the mini from USB and install windows from your usb stick (choose option1, then after reboot option2 and then option2 a 2nd time)
Once the windows install completes install the Battery, Wifi, 3G, SD applications.
To save disk space
Turn off hibernation - Control Panel > Power Settings
Turn off page file - My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings > Advanced > Virtual Memory Change > No Paging File, the press Set.
Finally you will see 2 .reg files in the Drivers+apps+misc folder
trayicon.reg removes the useless Intel graphics icon from the windows taskbar
resolution.reg fixes the windows start-up display resolution to 1024x600
