Mythbuntu is pretty straightforward.

I'd recommend installing to a test hard drive before overwriting your
Windows install. That way if it all goes south you can keep watching TV
from Windows. Just burn a copy of the Mythbuntu CD from their website,
run the installer and see how you go.

MythTV isn't really the most user-friendly piece of software to set up,
so you're likely to run into some issues. Most likely somebody else has
already found out how to work around it though, so google is your
friend here. Once you've got it all set up and working it should stay
that way, and using it is a pleasure.

Have fun!
