Default mach_kernel error 10.5.8 upgrade - 11-15-2009, 10:37 PM

I followed the NBI instructions exactly and got the mach_kernel error. Using the hint to type mach-kernel at the boot "blank" at the bottom of the mac boot screen works fine for me. Unless there is a clear indication that editing the bootlist line is foolproof, I'm staying with the fix oioaoi supplied. Thanks.

Mini 9 with Stec 32gb ssd, wifi, bluetooth, 1.3 camera. Most everything works perfectly. Bluetooth toolbar indicator comes and goes but BT works AOk with my wireless mouse and keyboard. CD sharing pref option did not appear in the sharing pref pane after installing the OS 10.5.8 upgrade, but I found a fix at this link.

CD sharing still does not show up in the Mini 9 sharing prefpane, but remote disc pops into the devices section of the Finder sidebar.
