Sounds wicked Scott!

What parameters are you using for mount on the the old ws/nfs client?

I have had my Myth box up and running for about 2 years now FC1->FC3.  The 
atrpms yum repository makes it nice to set it and forget it when the upgrades 
come rolling out.  The wife and kids love it.  I am not into TV and such, but 
it is nice to record a program every once in awhile.  No HDTV for us... 
Luddites that we are. ; )
