Try 81 or 82 - that should work for your USB external HD (I think).

Dell Mini 9 with a STEC 64gb SSD running OS X Leopard 10.5.6
MBP (Early 2008 model) 2.4, 200GB 7200 RPM, 4GB
Mac Mini 1.83Ghz, 80GB, 4GB

Boot codes 80 & 81 are for hard drives, internal or external. You can't be guaranteed that the internal SSD will be 80. I've had an external USB hard drive show up as 80 and the internal as 81. Just pay attention to the volume name you assigned the drive using disk utility.
