By default, Netbook Installer does not provide microphone support in current versions.
Netbook Installer + Dell Mini 9 Audio with Microphone without VoodooHDA (Snow 10.6.2)
is the best functional mini 9 for 10.6.2. All audio will work after the above.

That's the type of tutorial I followed, I read the replies and saw one that said he couldn't boot his netbook any more.

install normally, then simply update the kexts in the /extra / dell mini 9 extensions folder as per Eligos's post I am reposting here (doesn't want to link nicely for some reason):

iChat now works really well using the built-in mic.
• Speakers work 100%
• Earplug jack works 100%
• Mic works 100%
Note: I removed the one in S/L/Extensions to have no conflicts.
This is awesome!
Repost from posts below to make it simpler. ;-)

2. Paste this /Extra/Mini9Ext/
3. Paste the 2 kexts (see links) into that folder. You will need to input your password.
4. Go to /Extra and run UpdateExtra application.
5. Reboot and you're done.
