I had no experience with MythTV until recently, but bought a Hauppage 
PVR-350, grabbed an Ubuntu 8.04 ISO and went for it. The Ubuntu install 
is straightforward and MythTV is not too bad once you figure it out.

I strongly suggest you verify your own hardware compatibility before 
doing any of this. Unless I'm mistaken the Dell E1505 is a laptop. Not 
sure whether that USB TV tuner is supported by Ubuntu and/or Myth. As a 
newbie, you will save a ton of time by using a tried and true hardware 
configuration as your baseline...
