Go with what your comfortable with. I've already got 2 running Debian systems
so I went with Debian and compiled MythTV from SVN. I did use Jarod's guide
extensively though, as there is a lot of information that is generic and
doesn't matter what distro your using. Some stuff just needs to be translated
from FC4 speak to Debian or whatever else.
