To preempt your next question and give some clarification.  Mythweb is
simply an html based interface for the myth backend.  Typically it is
installed under apache and would operate like any other website.  From your
backend you can usually access it by typing http:\\localhost\mythweb, or
from another pc on your network http:\\<servername_or_ip>\mythweb.  If you
really wanted to, you could actually have it open to the internet and use it
to schedule shows and whatnot from anywhere you have an internet connection.

I suggest taking a look at the Wiki and doing some research about making it
work in Gentoo, but I had not trouble getting it working on Gentoo 5-6 years
ago, I can't imagine it could be more difficult now.
