Subsequently, I installed it on the work Asus eee 901 laptop - this went very well. Doesn't boot as fast as the original Linux distribution, however 40sec from off to fully on and operational isn't bad for a 900mhz Celeron & 1GB ram.
Next thought - can I install MythFrontend on Linux Mint? Sure enough it's available to apt-get and five min later it was installed.
I took this tiny wee NB home and woohoo the current release of MythFrontend on an Asus EEE 901 with a 4GB SSD + 16GB SSD running Linux Mint can connect to my backend and play back the recorded TV.
Granted the CPU/GPU on this wee thing struggled to playback Ninja Warrior in fullscreen, but the audio kept up fine.
Next up, openSUSE11 & MythTV on the EEE and attempting to make the same combination work on an old Thinkpad T23 with 256mb RAM...
