Yep. That's an APIPA address. I'm assuming the DHCP pool isn't full up, so I'd think that's not the issue. Interesting that both OS'es are seemingly having the issue. That points to likely hardware (or software on that AP) issue on either the Mini or the AP. I don't suspect the AP for obvious reasons, so that sounds more like the wifi adapter.
For shits and giggles, have you tried bouncing the AP? That's definitely one thing to try. I don't know if you were able to get the wifi card out (doesn't look like it from what I've read), so reseating the card probably won't work, but it's worth "pressing it in" I guess, and also reseating the antenna connections if you haven't already.
Just a couple of thoughts/ideas.

I also use MyWi on my iPhone (makes it act like an ad hoc network) and the 10v can connect to that.
So, I am a happy camper! No need to get a new WiFi card. Dual boot is working great. So, now I have a netbook with 2 gigs of RAM, a half terabyte hard drive and 2 great operating systems. Now I'm just awaiting the delivery of my internal Bluetooth card and things will be perfect.
Thanks for all your assistance!

Thanks for this great guide! but i have a few problems.
I'm using this guide on my NC10, i do the exact steps you describe but when i get to the Windows 7 part i'm stuck!
Windows 7 refuses to install on the GPT disk, how can i resolve this ?
I used the following:
Windows 7 Enterprise (original from MSDN)
Samsung NC10 (Atom N270 32-bit)
Snow Leopard 10.6 (Retail)
I hope you can help me.
