You can post it here (or in -users) for comments or just create a new 
ticket and attach the text to the ticket ( 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/wiki/TicketHowTo ) along with a description 
of where it should appear in the HOWTO.  Please try to keep it as 
generic as possible or at least make comments when behavior is 
distribution-specific and specify which distro you're describing.

Oh, and, please make sure you address where the core file ends up, too.  :)
