Thanks William

I have decided to return to the compile scene due to my dislike of 
Ubuntu past Edgy. Both my personal machine and my Myth machine (which is 
MythBuntu based now) have given me problems while 7.10 has been 
installed. I suspect the age of the hardware is the problem along with 
Gutsy (and no doubt future editions of Ubuntu) requiring more and more 
horsepower to run them, ala Windows Vista. On both my Gutsy machines I 
experience frequent lockups and strange behaviour and have only been 
putting up with it due to lack of time to rebuild both of them.

And yes, I do want to keep my current setup, meaning recordings and 
database. I am on the trunk builds of MythBuntu and have 021 from there 
for a while now. I have sorta been waiting for a "stable" version of 021 
to arrive so I can embark on my reinstall. As for my personal machine, 
goin gback to Edgy will hopefully be temporary as I plan to buy an iMac 
in the future.
