So is there a procedure so I can find out what has happened when Myth
Crashes and report it?

I've had 5-6 crashes per week since I installed MythTv (not bitching
But my Linux experience is limited 

(read: I'm a windows expert and I only installed Linux so I can run

When a crash has occurred, I've looked through the log files 
(in /var/log, is this where I should look???) but I've not really every
across information that looks useful when Myth Frontend or Myth Backend

When the front end crashes it usually just dumps me out to X and it's
either F1-R or
Reboot to get it all back.

I'm a professional software developer so I would be more than happy to
