Hi Roger,

   LinHES isn't really designed around that. It's intended to be "build a machine like a TiVo and install" -- it's an appliance style build.

If you want to install Myth and use it on an existing system, than installing Myth via RPM is more what you'd like to do.

I hope that clarifies.. Essentially, LinHES is the wrong tool for what it sounds like the job you want to accomplish.
