This sounds great, but I cant' get it working. I downloaded myxer.tar
and untarred it into /var/www/html which is m\the root dir for apache
on my FC3 distro. I can get the indedx page up but when I select one
of the links for buttons I just a table of grey buttons all saying
"oops". Similarly, when I click the backgrounds link I get a mostly
empty table with some cells containing "oops". So I'm not able to
select anything to get a preview.

The dir /usr/share/mythtv/themes/Myxer/MyxerCustomizer exists and
there are some sub-dirs under it which contain images etc.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I'd really like to try this out.

PS, your page has an invalid link under the "myxer frontend" heading -
