    I plan to upgrade my wife's Mac Mini 2009 to 10.6 and while I realize a fresh install is the best way to go, I will instead to an in place upgrade. I have one concern due to the fact that she has Bootcamp configured w/ XP. Are there any potential issues with upgrading to Snow Leopard with an existing install having Bootcamp configured? Appreciate any feedback/advice. Thanks.

    Just upgraded my baseline early 2008 Macbook to SL yesterday, with XP SP3 running on bootcamp and no issues at all.

    You shouldnt have to worry about XP, as its on a different partition, so SL wont touch it (if you go along with the upgrade route.)

    You should be more concerned with backing up any vital data on Leopard ;)

    Thanks for your reply, the in place upgrade from 10.5 -> 10.6 with the existing Bootcamp went smoothly. ;)
