Well I kind of goofed. I installed SuSE 64 bit on my Athlon 64. Great except I 
can't get the win32 codecs working (duh!) and the nvidia drivers don't play 
nice with mythtv. I see errors in the stdout of mythfrontend when it tries to 
do XV and OpenGL. I'm in the middle of a retrofit of 32 bit SuSE, but it is 
hard to find gaps between the programs I'm recording. I'll let you know in a 
week or two.
