What installation disk are you using to try to install Mac OS X 10.6? You would seem to be using an installer disk from another model of Mac, since you refer to Mac OS X 10.6.8 and the last retail installer came with 10.6.3, and if so that other Mac's disk won't work and is not legal. You need a retail copy of the 10.6 installer (white label with the picture of a snow leopard).
If you are using a retail version, post back and someone may have ideas.

I was mistaken on the version-- it is 10.6.3 and was sealed in factory pkg with the Snow Leopard image on the disk--says "Install DVD Version 10.6.3 2Z691-6634-A"

I just found out from Applecare that you CANNOT install/upgrade an OS on a disk with bootcamp on it. Now I get to backup bootcamp with either CCC or Winclone, re-initialize the HD, and do a clean install of 10.6, configure bootcamp, and re-install the WinXP stuff.
