    I can't find my Mac Mini install disks anywhere. I can't remember if the Mini even came with them in the first place because I bought it new from eBay during the live.com discounts.
    How might I go about getting install disks? I don't think my MBP (early 2008) disks will work.

    you can call Apple they will send you replacement disks for about $20 each, they are called fulfillment disks. disks from another system won't work.

    Yikes. Can I get them any cheaper at the Apple store?

    But that's for the retail copy of the OS, not the restore media, which you can't get at the store.

    This eBay guide says that replacement discs are free under AppleCare. If this is true, I'll be giving them a call.

    Yeah, I don't think they're free. I was pretty sure that you have to pay for media at least.
