I am holding off on 10.6.3 until a few more bugs are worked out of NBI 0.8.4. However, I have applied every other available update (marked 10.6.3 as "ignore" for now) via Software Update in 10.6.2. ...

Not a good idea IMO. It will not significantly speed up boot time and will make life more difficult when installing apps, updating OS X to new versions, etc.

I don't have a real Mac for reference, but the anti-pop page I linked above indicates that the issue does occur on real Mac laptops--"particularly on MacBooks and MacBook Pros."

I agree it should work. I did not mean to say that it needs to be over 8GB, just that it needs to have actual usable space that is close to advertised. What is advertised as 8GB can end up being...

0.8.4 no longer supports running from 10.5.x. 0.8.3 does, but it doesn't support installing 10.6.3. That leaves you with a bit of a dilemma if the retail disc you bought is really 10.6.3... ...

Are you booting with both USB drives inserted or only the NBI one at first then inserting the OS X one a few seconds later (as some guides suggest)? If the latter, it may be a timing issue. You can...

Yes, provided the drive is on the large side of "8GB" (actual usable space vs. advertised varies from brand to brand) you should have room for the OS X image.

Writing the OS X disk image to the external HDD will remove all existing partitions, and you will lose the data on the HDD.

I would recommend installing Snow Leopard (10.6). Hardly anyone here runs 10.5 on a 10v, and it is no longer supported beginning with NBI 0.8.4.
