> debian/etch, AMD CPU at 1.0GHz, 2GB RAM, GeForce 6200 with 256MB.
> 100GB spare hard drive space. Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 (74021 F tuner).
> After getting the MythTV frontend and MySQL databases more-or-less started

>> Installation Guide
>> 0. You must stop the MythBackend from running or you will receive errors
>> while installing these drivers.
> None found running. OK
> 1. Install the latest v4l-dvb drivers
>> First find your kernel version. Run uname -r and you should get something
>> like this:
>> uname -r
> I have debian/etch: (2.6.18-5-k7)
> 1a. Download the latest
>> sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-$KERNEL_VERSION
> I used this code:
>> sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-2.6.18-5-k7 build-essential
> hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
> This worked OK:
>> added 10304 changesets with 26556 changes to 1695 files
>> 1226 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
> But when it comes to the next steps, I hit a brick wall:
>> 1b. Compile and add the module to your kernel:
>> cd v4l-dvb
>> sudo make install
>> sudo make unload
>> sudo modprobe cx18
> The command, "cd v41-dvb" is a mystery. Not "change directory" for sure.
> Shorthand for something else ... ?
> Should I have done these steps as root ... ?
> There is no file name containing the characters, "v41-dvb."
> Should I look in the CDROM's that came with the tuner card ?
cd = Change Directory
The "hg" command should have created a subfolder named "v4l-dvb" which is
V4L-DVB (in lowercase). The instructions are telling you to change into
that directory in order to compile the source code you downloaded with the
