  This is what I have, a V10K with a PVR350. It works very well
 for my purposes. (I don't play DVDs from it as I have a dedicated
 DVD player. If the processor was faster, I might use it for playing
 DVDs but ....)

   Yes, I originally used KnoppMyth (R4V2?) and it worked pretty well
 although I found that a later version of the ivtv
 driver was much more stable and Matthais' X driver was needed.

  Yes,  you'll need a monitor initially but once you have network
 access to the box you can do nearly everything without the monitor.
 You might want to setup the BIOS before getting rid of the monitor 
 and switching to Matthias' X driver.

  No idea.  I got my basic box from the guys at SolarPC and they were
 good to work with.
