Maiku's MythTV How To
Maiku, who writes a user journal at Build Your Own PVR.com, wrote a nice How To on getting MythTV installed on a Mandrake distro. MythTV is a daunting task, but it's a pretty cool product and every time someone puts one of these How To's together, it gets a bit easier for the next person.

I really appreciate the folks (like maiku and others) that take the time to document their experiences. Sometimes it takes alot to just figure out how to get everythign to work. It's another level to bother to take copious notes. It's another level on top of that to take the time to edit, compile, format and post/share your exprience/info.
So kudos to Maiku, Homebrew, Jarrod, and anyone else who voluntarily helps document projects like MythTV.
Another thing (as mentioned in maiku's post) making mythtv easier is KnoppMyth ( http://www.mysettopbox.tv/index.html ) bootable .ISO CD that is tailored to install linux and mythTV/dependencies. When I start my MythTV project that's what I'm going to use for a first crack at it.
