The HD panel is not going to work in your 10v, the connector is slightly different (though it will appear to fit), so you won't get the higher resolution.

If you are running 10.6.2 you should be able to go to 10.6.7 with relative ease by using the specific NBI 20100616212351. Make sure you run the NBI immediately after applying the 10.6.7 Combo Update and before you restart! The combo update alters some of the kexts and you'll get a kernel panic if you don't run NBI before rebooting.

I have also managed to solve the externel VGA mirroring bug, so the only thing that's really missing is sleep, a feature I can live without since OS X boots so quickly on the 2100.

Let me know if you need any more assistance with specific problems. Once you're at 10.6.7 you should also be able to update to 10.6.8. I would not recommend doing the 10.6.8 combo update directly from 10.6.2. There's something that it wants from 10.6.7 that doesn't exist in 10.6.2, and I haven't nailed down just what it is.
