I'm building my first MythTV box.  It'll be a back end
box that I'll admin remotely (web, rsh, ftp, etc). 
It's sole purpose right now will be to schedule
recordings and transcode them to smaller video files
for pulling later to my PC at a different location. 
I'm not planning for any other MythTV modules or front
end box at the moment.

Below is the machine I'll be piecing together.  Anyone
know of any known issues with any of the following
hardware in Linux and/or MythTV?

  - Shuttle XPC SN85G4V3
    + nVIDIA nForce3
    + Realtek ALC655 Onboard Audio
    + Onboard Lan
  - AMD Athlon 64 3000
  - CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB DDR 400
  - Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200GB SATA150
  - NEC DVD Burner ND-3550A
  - ASUS V9400 Geforce MX4000 128MB
  - Hauppauge WinTV PVR 350
  - RedHat Fedora Core 4

BTW, this will be hooked up serially to a DirectTV
D10-100 receiver.

Any info regarding this setup or conflicts between it
and Fedora and/or MythTV would be greatly appreciated.
