Probably the easiest way to get a working Myth system again is to install
the latest kernel from FC1 and related modules. I haven't tried it, but
in theory it should work. ;-) You may also want to install the
fedora-release package from FC1 as well and then it will think it's a FC1
machine, but I would try just the kernel first.
That will save you the hassle of totally downgrading the machine and then
upgrading it again later.
