Thanx everyone for your advice.  Sounds like Knoppmyth is the way to go.  Does 
it have everything one might need for development as well?  We want to 
eventually write modules for custom applications on it.

BTW, I assume MythTV is GPL.  Does that mean anything we write as an add-on have 
to be under GPL?

i'll second this.  KnoppMyth is an excellent distro for someone
starting out with Myth.  you should feel fairly at home with this
distro since you've used Debian; KnoppMyth is based on Knoppix, which
is based on Debian.
easy install, great support and resources (mysettopbox.com).
if you're using fairly standard hardware it's a no muss, no fuss
 solution. ;)
