i'm using a mini 10v, also with atom processor. so i'd imagine this will work for you as well. I hope someone else can verify that.

but if you've already got a 10.6 thumb drive, that may be all you need. i tested that install myself just yesterday (maybe the day before) to see if i could jump from 10.6, straight to 10.6.6

(again, I'm on a 10v so the following may not work for you, and even other 10v users have had difficulties doing it this way)

here's what i did:
Installed 10.6 (custom. I unchecked everything except the core OS in the customize tab) My install USB was prepped with NBI 0.8.4 RC1, so, if yours is not, you may want to fint that NBI, run it and reboot.
After setting up the initial bootup, and getting to the desktop, i downloaded and ran this version of NBI:

without rebooting, I ran Software Update, and ran only the OS Update; no itunes no security update, or anything like that.

The update went through fine, rebooted, and came up with the NBI screen... after some minutes, i was back to the desktop.. i then proceeded with the other updates in Software Update,

everything worked just fine.

but you can follow the update threads if this fails for you. you could go from 10.6 to 10.6.2 to 10.6.3 and so forth...
