SSD 10.6 installation trouble

im having trouble installing 10.6 into this new SSD.
Its been put into my macbook pro as a second hard drive using a 2nd HD caddy that takes the place of my optical drive.
Since i wouldn't have a optical drive i went ahead and formatted an external USB HD with installable 10.6 before hand.
I've partitioned the new drive in disk utility as mac OSX journaled and GUID with one partition.
From the USB HD with snow leopard, i begin the installation onto the 60 GB SSD. The installation goes for about 5 min, then says it will continue installing after a restart. The computer restarts, but remains stuck in the grey screen with apple. I left it for 45 min but it remained stuck.
I've tried it several times with the same result. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
