The best way for myth to 'coexist' with a desktop PC is for it to be on
a second machine with NFS drives mapped between them and using a remote
frontend, or even just mythweb.
Theoretically they can coexist, and if you really want to try, using a
distribution that has packages for myth (if you don't want to compile
them yourself). I used Mandriva at one point, and Fedora is popular. I
now have Mandriva for my desktop, and a second smaller PC runs
Knoppmyth. It works well this way.
