Build from source. its easy once you have the required deb's installed. I've 
got Myth running on all three of my Debian systems.

I'd also suggest against Ubuntu, stick with real Debian. Kanotix is a good 
Live! distro that can be easily HD installed, or KnopMyth is good as well and 
has a great forum for support and is specific for running MythTV.
