Sorry been away for a while.
This is the exact step by step that should work (just for verification)
Taken from http://osx.mechdrew.com/guides/nbi1.shtml and also http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...-official.html which has the newest info for SL.
Insert DVD and USB drive.
Open Disk Utility (Applications/Utilities).
Click on USB drive icon that states the capacity of the drive (i.e. 7.1 Gb, 7.6 GB, etc.).
Open the Partition tab.
Volume Scheme: 1 Partition
Format: Mac OS Extended
Options...: Master Boot Record, then click OK.
When Partition is finished, open the Restore tab.
Drag "Mac OS X Install DVD" from the left pane into the Source field in the right pane.
Drag OSXDVD from the left pane into the Destination field in the right pane.
Click Restore, then click Restore in the popup window.
Enter your password (if used), and then wait approximately 25 minutes to 2 hours.
When restoration is finished, close Disk Utility and eject the DVD.
Those steps should make a bootable OSX USB stick, but you'll still need to patch it with NetBookInstaller to install to a Mini9/10 or other non-Mac machine.
