Howdy all.

Well, after reading about Myth and looking at different PVR/Media
Servers etc, I decided to take the plunge (kinda).

Last night I set myself up Mandrake 9.1 running within VMware, so I
can see what this Myth thing is all about.  I want to let you know, I
have never installed a Linux OS before, and have little experience
with it (can you tell I am pretty happy with myself?).

Sorry for the long post, but I am not going to let this little problem
stop me on my quest for PVR freedom!!!!

GMAIL is 'da bomb baby....YEAH
