Thanks for the replies everyone.

Matthew Mrosko:
That is an awesome idea with the distcc. My local computer supplier
had some GX150's for sale a while ago and I never thought to pick them
up for front ends. I'll definately look into it. I had planned on
using Xboxes, but this sounds like a better way to go. One question:
What did you use for remotes?

Scott: I run RHEL on my server at my office. I'm very happy with it.
Awesome uptime, and the life cycle is great too. I don't plan on a
reload until I replace the server. I was successful getting a kernel
compiles on gentoo last night on my test laptop, so I think getting it
to run myth should be feasable for me. I've only ever used precompiled
kernels from RedHat, so this was something new to me.

Bob Weber: Thanks for the vote as well. I plan on starting out my
master backend small the first time around. I just have a PVR-350 in
it for now using the TVOut on the 350. I have a PVR-250 card as well
as a Nexxus 2.1 card for the RPT channel on AMC4 I plan to pull in as
well. My wife is portuguese and she watches soaps on there a bit, so
that will be nice for her.

I'll install this weekend and see how I make out. I learned alot from
Jarods guide about mythtv and ivtv in general, so I will be able to
apply that to my gentoo install.

Thanks everyone.
