You'll want to start out with running at least Mandriva 2010.0, if not 
2010.1 to get up-to-date packages of Myth .23 fixes.

How are you planning on using the system?  Dedicated back end (BE), and 
combo Front End/Back End?

If you're looking for it to be a combo machine, I'd suggest that you use 
a light weight desktop, such as LXDE, it comes along with KDE and Gnome 
on both the 2010.0 and 2010.1 DVDs
