Just in case others are having the issue where MythBuntu wouldn't "boot"
properly. The issue was that the machine would boot, but not give me a
display. I got a new machine (Dell XPS400) and installed with a different
video card. The same thing happened. After SSHing into the box, and
checking the Xorg.0.log file, it seems that the machine couldn't find the
fglrx driver and thus wouldn't create a screen. Odd to say the least. I
switched it to the radeon driver and it seems to be working now.
