I can try.

- for both machines
        - running RH8.0.
        - followed the great docs on www.mythtv.org for getting myth

mysql access on a RH8.0 machine.  There are other ways to do this, but I 
simply used the rpms from freshrpms.net to upgrade.
        - be sure to be running the same version of cvs on both machines

- for frontend machine
        - changed the IP address from "localhost" to my backend IP address 
in MC/programs/mythfrontend/main.cpp before compiling the frontend machine

- for backend machine
        - changed backend_settings.txt ServerIP to the backend's IP 
address (not localhost)
        - added mythtv@<FRONTEND_IP> user access to mysql
        - make sure the mysql ports are open and accessable from 

I think that is about it.  Let me know if I missed something
