OK. So i bit the bullet last night, and upgraded with the Runcore method - here's how it went:
I downloaded NBI 0.83 to my netbook runcore drive, then shutdown the machine.
I pulled the drive and hooked it up to my imac via microUSB. I mounted the drive and made a .dmg backup image.
I loaded the snow leopard install dvd and ran it, and upgraded the runcore drive to 10.6.
I restarted the imac, booting to the runcore drive. I ran software update, and updated everything, up to 10.6.1, drivers, everything.
I ran NBI 0.83, with all defaults checked, but UNCHECKED generate dsdt.aml
I shut down the imac, unhooked the drive, and rebooted the imac to my regular boot drive.
I reinstalled the runcore into the Vostro A90, and booted up Snow Leopard. I re-ran NBI 0.83, and this time checked generate dsdt. Rebooted again, made sure to Disable USB legacy and USB wake in the BIOS settings.
I was still left with a problem waking from sleep. If i closed the lid, I could not wake from sleep. I have temporarily remedied this with a free prefpane called "smartsleep" (google is your friend), and switch to "sleep only" on that pref pane - it removes hibernation (which I am told doesnt work anyway with NBI), and all is GOOD....
