When you say that your other Linux box is a webserver, do you mean
that you already have an internet accessible Linux web server set up?
If so, then what you want to do is very easy. Mythweb can run on any
box, it doesn't have to sit on the myth backend or anything like that.
You just have to tell it what box to connect to for mysql. So, all you
really need to do is setup mythweb on your webserver. That's how I do
it. I run mythweb on my Linux firewall, which is directly accessible
from the internet. If you do this, I'd advise you to password protect
it. Don't want strangers discovering that they can delete your TV
