Yep, that's pretty much it -- use Mac OS X's partitioning tools to
resize your OS X partition to give yourself some free space to work
with, install rEFIt, and then just boot from the install CD of your
choice. As long as your selected distro supports all of the hardware,
the install process isn't much different to a standard PC -- just make
sure you install the boot loader on to your Linux partition, rather than
the disk's MBR.

If Tango Studio isn't modern enough to support all of the Mac Mini's
hardware, you might have better luck with something like Ubuntu 12.04.
