    I had a problem recently which required me to stick my leopard disk in to fix permissions.

    I'd like to have a usb stick available that I could use that to do this process instead so I thought of installing leopard on to the stick for this occasion, but is there a smarter way of doing this - short of dupeing (sp?) the OSX install dvd on to a stick?

    So what is the minimum install size of a vanilla copy of OSX Snow leopard?

    Works just fine. I'd use a 16GB if it's an option, but it's possible to make it work on an 8GB.

    You might also consider Carbon Copy Cloner. If you have a external hard drive, you can clone your system to the external drive and boot from it in time of trouble. It even has options to keep the two drives in sync.
