Here are the steps I took (from a fully working 10.6.7 DM9):

1) Repair Disk Permissions

2) Download nawcom's legacy kernel and SleepEnabler, unzip both files and put them in your root folder

3) You will also need Kext Helper b7

4) Run NetbookInstaller Special (xxx2351)

5) Download and install 10.6.8 Combo Updater

6) When it is finished, let it reboot (do not run the NBI special again)

7) NBI special will run automatically (takes about 10 min) after reboot, and then you will get the reboot loop

8) Press shift key to get to the Chameleon prompt and type "recovery=yes"

9) Boot into safe mode, and rename legacy_kernel in your root directory and change owner

sudo mv /legacy_kernel-10.6.8 /mach_kernel
sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel
(if you want to, mark the file hidden with "SetFile -a V" or "chflags hidden")
10) Reboot again, and this time boot loop will be gone, we are in OS X, sound is working, but sleep is not. Now we need to fix the sleep crash.

11) Run Kext Helper and drop SleepEnabler.kext into its open window or icon

12) Finger crossed. Restart your Dell Mini the last time.
Thank You for the Reply!!! I have tried this method now several times and I must be doing something wrong with the copying of the files to the "root" directory. Everything goes well....I get it out of boot loop and into recovery fine after the combo update, but when I try to run the script it can't find the files. when you say root directory you mean just the main hard drive of the os. I see that there is a hidden root user account that you can enable in the user account settings. should I be copying them to the Home folder as that user?

Ok...I think I got it! I found the directions for enabling root access and now I see the folders I need. Thanks again!

I actually used this guide and it gave script for the renaming of the old kernel. Everything is working perfect on 10.6.8!
