yea, I thought of that after sending the email. decided to stick with
having it run Gnome, especially now that Nick helped me get it to show
without the panels. The machine has enough RAM for it and at worse she
has to click the mouse to run Myth again. I may also put a button on
the remote to relaunch Myth if it's not running.
