Just purchased a mac mini (mid 2010). It came with 10.6.8 installed. I have several programs that won't run in 10.6. Can I hook up an external drive with 10.5.8 and designate it as the start up disk when I need access to these programs?

The earliest OS/X version supported for that machine is 10.6.4.
