Thanks again, Nick...I just used synaptic to search for something to record TV 
on my computer, and mythtv showed up... So I just added the sources.list and 
installed that way. I did no configuring of my own, and haven't gotten past 
the errors I've showed you.
>"Why are you connecting to the database as user mysql?
 I just got the setup screen and I tried my normal username, root, and finally 
mysql  (because that is the 'user' listed in /etc/mysql/my.cnf) and nothing 
is working at all...
Now I'll go do as you said and see if that helps...thanks again. This is 
frustrating for me.
