Ubuntu Linux 5.1 "Breezy Badger"

I replaced my 733MHz CPU with a 2.4GHz Pentium 4 chip, and decided to get away from Fedora Core 3 and use Ubuntu 5.1 "Breezy Badger", which has been really good to me on my laptop.

Make sure to create the user with the login "mythtv" -- this is the user that MythTV expects will be there, so this will save you some time in the next few steps.

As soon as I installed the base system, I replaced /etc/apt/sources.list with the following contents, so that I could install apps from outside the distribution
