    Hey peeps. I got my retail copy of Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, my Super Drive seems to not read Dual layered DVD's (including Snow Leopard, my regular Leopard, etc...)

    Is there a way I can install booting from a USB drive? Or a Firewire drive?!? Thanks!

    Copy an image of the DVD to a 8 GiB flash drive or an empty USB/firewire hard drive partition.

    This might help

    Can this be done with an upgrade, not a clean install? I don't want to wipe my hard drive, just upgrade to SL. (Late to the party, I know.)

    Yes you can do this with an upgrade, it does not require a clean install.
