Hooray! I was lucky to have not gotten any KP or other issues and successfully updated from 10.6 to 10.6.4. I'm on a Dell Mini 10v. I'm not sure what I did right, but here's what I did:
1) I remade my boot disk with this version of bootmaker 0.8.4 RC1:
NetbookBootMaker 0.8.4 RC1.app.zip - netbook-installer - NetbookBootMaker 0.8.4 RC1. - Project Hosting on Google Code
2) After booted to the old 10.6, I ran a couple of versions of NBI, they might all be the same though:
NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 RC1.app.zip - netbook-installer - NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 RC1. - Project Hosting on Google Code
(from Google Code site)
(from post #1)
3) Downloaded the 10.6.4 combo pack from Software Update. Did the next step before restart.
4) Opened Terminal and did what post #524 documented:
sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATI* /Extra.bak/
sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce* /Extra.bak/
This step was a little confusing. It keeps saying "Error, no such file" or something like that. But I did it anyways.
5) Reboot, kept my fingers crossed.
6) Booted and saw the NBI logo, let it run while I went doing other things. And when I came back lo and behold I booted into my OS with everything working. Checked sound, camera, wifi, sleep and other features, everything works *tears of joy*!
Hope this can be helpful for some people who are having trouble out there.

I've done the recommendations per Jay and minigirl...still get the grey screen with apple logo and white no entry sign. Back to a clean install and leave 10.6.0 alone, don't even want to do the .2 update. Cheers
update, tried to update to 10.6.2, NBI ran automatically after reboot and still gives me the no entry sign...fiddle sticks...I guess I have to like plain vanilla.
Had a happy 10.6.6 machine and updated to 10.6.7, but no love...maybe I'll do a vanilla install...but probably not.

Okay, success after holding breath for 7 minutes (2103-2110 hours).
Whew, had the spinning pin wheel for what seemed like ages. The system finally rebooted and now I have upgraded to 10.6.4 following the advice of the original sticky post (from 10.6.0)
