Default Need Advice on Upgrade Path - 04-10-2009, 12:33 AM

Alrighty, my Dell Mini 9 arrived today. I bought it refurbished for $229:

Windows XP Home
1.3 Megapixel Camera
No bluetooth

I've decided to this route:

PHASE 1: Instantly upgrade memory to 2 GB, install OS X 10.5 Leopard, use the 8 GB USB thumb drive needed for install to store documents. Wait for 32 GB Runcore to arrive, plug in a cheap, miniature USB bluetooth dongle thingy.

PHASE 2: Clone STEC 8GB onto Runcore 32GB SSD, install the Runcore for delicious hackintoshness.

PHASE 3: Use Boot Camp to dual boot Windows 7 beta or XP.

PHASE 4: Use Boot Camp to triple boot Ubuntu so I can learn to use Linux console.

How does my roadmap look? Is there anything I should watch out for? I plan to do some more reading on OS X installation onto a 8GB SSD before I do it, so there will be time for anyone to head me away from the cliff's edge as needed.

Thanks guys.
