Re your first linux and Mythtv build. 

Be prepared for a steep learning curve - just learning where 
things are filed takes time. Whichever distro you choose, 
use a kernel that is already well utilised by mythtv people 
- 2.6.18 seems popular, and there are good recent reports 
for 2.6.20. If you use anything newer, and it may be hard to 
decide where problems lie and you may not find your 
answers in the archive.    

For a first time build, the trailing edge is advisable.
