Yeah, I'm going to back up all the Myth stuff, and try to find places on
my other machines for all the video files, etc.

I think I'm going to blow away the existing OS and to a fresh install
since I've got some dependency issues in my RPMs already. Also, I now
see that FC6 is due out in a month or so...I may wait for that since my
current Myth setup is working and I'm pretty busy now.  :-)

Thanks for all the replies.
