I'm happy to say that I got this working quite easily on OpenSuse 10.3
using this web site. http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/MCE_Remote

The great thing is that all three of my different remotes work. My MCE,
Hauppauge 350 grey remote, and my old grey remotes!

I love it! Time to build my stand alone frontend. Then deal with the
backend rebuild, hopefully with xen... hm, still need to find a
motherboard with 3+ slots and support for core 2 duo and/or core 2
