I forgot to add that Legacy USB was enabled.
I launched XP in Parallels & used an application found here Dell I910 Mini/Vostro A90 USB Key Drive flashBIOS Utility - DELL COMMUNITY to create a USB drive that actually worked!
I made another to confirm that it wasn't a fluke then successfully upgraded the BIOS on my beloved little computer. When that was finished I burned the BIOS updater to a CD, which is what I really wanted in the 1st place.
Disk Utility finished restoring the Leopard installer to the USB drive but now DellEFIBoomaker can't (or wont) install to it. After entering my password, I get the error message 'Can't install postinstall to OSXDVD.' That means I've screwed up a USB Leopard installer that was working perfectly.
Oh well; at least I was able to flash the BIOS, which was the purpose of this endeavor to begin with.
For some reason, whenever I post about a problem I'm having, I usually solve it soon afterward.
