The installer I wrote does a 'make install', it also installs all the
prerequisite packages and sets up the initial database.  I'm planning on
adding code to it to install and setup hardware once I get it installing
the software correctly. 

It should work a lot like the ximian desktop installer.  You can type a
one line command (wget -q -O - http://mythtv.dwightandamy.com/go.sh|sh)
answer a few question in the install dialog and after about an hour or
so have a working mythtv configuration.

I think this is a good way to address the issue that mythtv is harder to
install than freevo.
