I have an eeepc (no dvd drive) However I'm wondering if it would be possible to virtually mount the iso image to a drive, and boot it from there? What are your thoughts?

Also where can I find vanilla snow leopard?!

You can copy the contents of an install DVD to a USB flash drive, install the Chameleon bootloader, and boot from that. There are various tutorials around. You will need access to a DVD drive of course unless you pirate a Snow Leopard install DVD.

Snow Leopard is only 30 dollars on Amazon.

Interesting. I have a 1000H and want to transfer everything to a DVD and use that to install everything to a new Hard Drive. I want to re-install Win 7 to my netbook, but want to be able to re-install Mac OS 10.5.8 at a later date. In other words, I want to un-hockingtosh and then re-hockingtosh my netbook.

Can this be done using the method mentioned by Beerkex'd?
