I plugged my mini-pcie slot with wifi, but when drivers for linux are
integrated into mythtv, I will probably swap it for one of those.

The only real thing that irks me about the revo is the hdd.  Both of
mine are actually PATA, and there are not sata connectors internally.
Not a big deal, I just use the drive to keep the (compressed) original
XP install (in case I need to sell it one day).  Although it woul dbe
nice to have the opportunity to netboot and throw a sata 1TB drive in
there if I chose to...
