debian/etch, AMD CPU at 1.0GHz, 2GB RAM, GeForce 6200 with 256MB.
100GB spare hard drive space. Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 (74021 F tuner).
After getting the MythTV frontend and MySQL databases more-or-less started
up, I turned to the mythtv-backend.
I got this far:

None found running. OK
> 1. Install the latest v4l-dvb drivers

I have debian/etch: (2.6.18-5-k7)
> 1a. Download the latest
> sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-$KERNEL_VERSION build-essential
I used this code:
> sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-2.6.18-5-k7 build-essential
> hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
This worked OK:
> added 10304 changesets with 26556 changes to 1695 files
> 1226 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
But when it comes to the next steps, I hit a brick wall:
> 1b. Compile and add the module to your kernel:
> cd v4l-dvb
> sudo make install
> sudo make unload
> sudo modprobe cx18
The command, "cd v41-dvb" is a mystery. Not "change directory" for sure.
Shorthand for something else ... ?
Should I have done these steps as root ... ?
There is no file name containing the characters, "v41-dvb."
Should I look in the CDROM's that came with the tuner card ?
