sorry maybe I didn't explain so well... I'm already on 0.22, I started
on 0.21 I'm comfortable enough with a myth and Linux install and

Umm actually I think i'll stick to the decision I made above, I'll use
CentOS when the new update comes out. I don't want to be comfortable
doing this, if I wanted comfort I'd use MythBuntu. I'm sure it
couldn't be as difficult for CentOS as when I installed Gentoo or Arch

I'll still use it to learn on, but if I'm ever doing something that I
think will break the machine then I'll just use one of my vmware

Thanks for the help guys I'm happy with my decision.
