I'd second that the combination of Jarod's Fedora guides and using
apt-get with atrpms.net means you can get a Fedora-based Myth system
up and running quickly. If Fedora bring out a new kernel release, it
is usually only a few days until Axel at atrpms.net has got suitable
driver packages released, which makes upgrading fairly painless.
