How is anyone going to help you fix anything if you don't explain
what's wrong?  In fact, you have subsequent posters wondering if
there's something wrong with disk-less setups in general based on your
condemnation of them as "sucks for mythfrontend."  Talk about vague.
For the record, I've used disk-less/nfs-root frontends before and I'm
setting one up now using FC4 and I expect it will work flawlessly (and
quietly, once the drive is removed and the fans are undervolted.)
