Oiks, just realized haven't updated since 10.6.1 - can I go straight to this, or do I need to update incrementally?

Absolutely - Apple is very good about this. You want the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Combo Update 1.1, and once you've installed that, you can install Security Update 2011-006.

I think if you run Software Update, it will just give you the right stuff automatically.
