You need to update to 10.5.8. I know, "But I can't open the disk image!" your scream. Just take it to another Mac, open the image, and then copy the package inside it to your flash drive. As you noted, you'll need to have it plugged in before the Mini boots up so it will be recognized by the OS. Once you install the Update, you'll need to boot into Safe Mode and then you can run NetbookInstaller to make everything work right. Here's a step-by-step guide to the Combo Update process. Once this is finished all of your problems will be gone. Also, you can use Software Update for all updates EXCEPT 10.5.x updates, i.e. from 10.5.6 to 10.5.8. You should do that manually, as described in the link.
On a related note, you definitely don't have 10.5.6 since that version of the DVD does not have this issue. You must have 10.5.0 or 10.5.4. Not really important, but still nice to know. The version should have been noted on the left side of the DVD.
