Yea, I'd absolutely love to just purchase the Runcore but I'm going out of town for awhile and cannot wait for it to ship so I'm stuck with the internal 8GB drive. I was thinking of just picking up an extra SDHC card for my digital camera that can serve as "extra" space until I am able to get the new Runcore.

BTW, which method did you use to get a successful install? Any advice, help, etc. would be much appreciated. I have access to an external DVD drive, external HD and two USB thumb-drives that meet the required SPECs. Thanks for any help!

mini9 | 32gb runcore | 2gb | osx 10.6.2 | nbi 0.8.3 | a05
