I forgot to say also that, when I copied the SL install disk over to a USB nerdstick, the D630 refused to boot from it. It was therefore necessary to first install Snow Leopard on the main hard disk using a USB enclosure and nearby Mac Mini (which I also used for terminal work). Then I could transfer the drive over to the D630 for further work.

Note also that when I subsequently used Migration Assistant to transfer from the old Leopard hackintosh setup, it hosed the SL installation. I restored from backup and avoided making that mistake a second time.
