Thanks for the step-by-step guide. I just upgraded to 0.20.2 on Fedora
7 using RPMs from ATrpms (thanks, Axel!) and everything seems to have
worked perfectly.

I would note that the mythtv-setup process seemed to have some lag -
when updating the lineup it actually queries the existing Zap2It
servers which appear to be responding slowly right now, so be patient.
If it appears to get stuck you can kill the wget pulling data from
Zap2It which should speed things up.
