Hey Tom,

I installed from Packages... MythTV comes *with* Ubuntu Edgy.  I used
the guide for frontend_only on their wiki, here is a link to all of
their MythTV on Edgy docs:

I also used their Nvidia guide for my nvidia driver.  Once again...
flawless.  The only issue I'm having now is with lirc, and to be
honest, I've only had about 20 minutes to try and debug the problem so
it's probably something obvious I'm missing.
