I have 4 IDE hard drives on a Promise controller (TX2 maybe?) in my 
backend.  They are LVM'd together and running XFS on top.  I used FC2 
and setup the LVM and XFS at install time.

If you use one of the recent ck ivtv patches it should work with 2.6 
kernel.  I use ck99e myself.

>Is anyone here using MythTV on a FC2 machine?
Yes, my backend is FC2 running a 2.6.7 with a couple of 
patches.  My frontend is 2.6.7 vanilla.

I have used Jarod's guide in the past without any problems, but my FC2 
installations are from tarballs.  Mostly because I do development on them.

Not that I can think of.
