RDP would work, if you'd run xrdp on your backend (which I highly
doubt). You mean VNC or NX, surely.

But 'slogin -X userid at backend' then 'mythtv-setup' or 'mv
CentOS-4.0-i386-bin1to4.torrent torrentdirectory' is easier and
simpler, and thus better.

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
