Yeah, I need to get kernel updating instructions back in there in the right 
place... And I need to make some further changes to account for the fact you 
get only a minimal sources.list now. Gotta go mow the lawn, finish insulating 
and caulking around the new screen door I put up, clean out my ferrets' cage 
and umpteen other things before my wife will let me take more than 5 minutes 
on the computer. :-p

And yeah, just change at-stable to at-testing in /etc/apt/sources.list, 
apt-get update, apt-get install medley-package-config to get the full-blown 
sources.list. Note that it isn't necessary though, everything that is 
essential for a functionaly MythTV system is in the standard config file, 
once altered to at-testing.

# apt-get install kernel#2.6.8-1.521

Just a few more changes to make here and there, but it seems the new version 
is pretty close to the mark...
