In the mean time you can try the steps from my thread to load the VoodooHDA kext. I haven't tested the audio jacks on the computer myself so I cannot say if they work but some audio is better than no audio at all.
I'd make a backup of your boot drive and try out OSX 10.6.1. If you hate it, you can always go back. Doing the install plus kext patching takes about an hour and a half. Doing a disk clone/restore via Disk Utility takes about an hour on my 16GB drive.

You can choose to use VoodooHDA to get sound working if you wish... but this is not going to be included in NBM/NBI and will not be included in the "official" methods for installation.
There is nothing specifically wrong with Voodoo kexts, but they will not be added to the "official" install methods. Feel free to follow the guides and advice of others who have got their audio working using Voodoo kexts
This should not have any ill effect on your Mini and hopefully the official fix will be out soon and included in NBI

The reason why VoodooHDA isn't included with NetbookInstaller is because it has problems. Yes, you can get around them using sleep scripts and such, but I'm not about to add it until there is no other option (or the problems get fixed).

What are the problems with it? Do they only relate to mini9s with STEC HDDs or is it more pervasive than that?
