The best results for me atleast was the Diesel 16gb USB drive (newegg) and the Geeks.com ata/sata to usb adapter. I haven't tried my new laptop dvdrom case the I got from Ebay. I did notice that I had to plug them in before power on and then get in to BIOS and select the boot device. I still use 2 drives, 1 boot 1 install.

Excellent advice! I ran out and get a new external HD and it is recognized as USB STORAGE instead and everything works now. Net net, if the external drive is recognized as REMOVABLE DEVICE, that is NO GOOD to be a bootable drive.

They already ship 10.5.6 DVDs. The combo pack includes it, and you can purchase them separately.
