The cx88-dvb modules are in the FC4 kernel, so the card should work
out of the box (assuming it's a newer 90002 Nova-T). I'd recommend
using atrpms to get around the ivtv drivers clashing with the kernel
DVB drivers as the ivtv drivers are renamed in the atrpms version to
specifically avoid this.

udev rules might need to be edited to ensure the DVB devices are
created with the correct permissions, but apart from that, you
shouldn't expect any biggies.
