Any of the guides on this forum (in the Guides section) will give you maximum compatibility. All rely on having a retail Leopard disc, and pretty much use all the same set of patches, so there are almost no variations in compatibility on the same hardware that I know of. Note that as of this moment, upgrading to 10.5.8 is presenting problems for the battery menu item and Energy Saver preferences.
For me, the most elegant method is still the direct installation onto a RunCore SSD. Obviously this requires you to replace the stock SSD with a RunCore brand SSD, but since many people make this upgrade anyway because of the obvious space and performance reasons, it's good to take advantage of this. Unlike other methods, this doesn't require an external DVD reader or a USB thumb drive, because it involves treating the SS drive as an external USB drive on one of your Macs, as a blank target for a new Leopard installation.
If you're not going to upgrade to a RunCore, go with the NetbookInstaller.
