If you happen to be upgrading to a RunCore SSD, the direct installation of Leopard to the RunCore via USB is the most elegant method, because you don't have to reimage the installation disc. It involves actually installing Leopard from your Mac onto the SSD, as if it were just another hard drive. AFAIK the update to 10.5.7 is also smoother, since you can boot from the RunCore on a real Mac, run Software Update as normal, run DellEFI (still on the RunCore-booted Mac), swap the drives in your A90, boot up the A90, and then run Dell EFI again from the A90. No USB thumb drive middle man! Again, this only works with the RunCore drives.
