Funny you should mention this... I've just started taking a look at the
feasibility of converting ThinStation <http://thinstation.sf.net> to
diskless MythTV frontends. I'm possibly barking up the wrong tree, but
TS would appear to be a very good place to start. My Linux knowledge is
OK, but I've never attempted anything like this before.
Has anyone else taken a look at anything similar?
