if you've never installed linux, you might look into ubuntu first. You
can run the LIveCD just to check it out. You can even install it on
your windows machine with windows to check it out (dont have to
reformat your drive, etc.)

After checking it out, you could install it (after you backup your
disk, or at least your important data like your thunderbird
directories). I would suggest installing linux first before you
install MythTV so you can get some experience with linux.

Another way to go is run Mythbuntu that is ubuntu tailored for mythtv.
There are plenty of guides on the web.
For instance:
