 I know almost nothing about Linux or mythtv. I used the latest Alpha4 
build of Mythbuntu and then installed the ubuntu desktop from it's 
console. It worked fantastic! All I had to do was create the archives 
temp directory and get it's permissions right and my system was up and 
running! I think all newbies would be best served by mythbuntu. Just my 
2 cents, you might want another distro since your more experienced.
