You do not need to perform the 'apt-get update/ apt-get dist-upgrade' as the installer does this for you automatically now. But you will need an active internet connection so it can.

Altering the DHCP and firewall settings are hardly non-standard, when you can do so from withing the LinuxMCE interface as checkboxes. If the system is unable to have the settings it allows you to change be changed, there is an issue that should be reported as a possible bug, to help out the development. I may not be a programmer or part of the project, but I consider myself at least an above-average linux user.
If having to stick to the basic and unchanging install setting is the only answer, it loses all pretense of being helpful. As it turns out, the
network settings ended up being fine, and the only helpful advice was from Techstyle, which I appreciate. The mucking about I did was perfectly fine, and the server so far is handling it without issue, although I think I may need to find a better way to drive the video on
my Intel mini-ITX system, since its having trouble decoding videos and doing the screen saver without lurching. I can do that research though.
No hits yet on how to handle a samba share off of a windows XP machine to have it show up under movies on the Core/Hybrid. THAT problem is starting to irk me, since I'm not getting any error reporting through the admin interface and don't know where the logs are.
Also found out that if you remotely restart the Hybrid MD interface from a web-administration interface, it seems to start *two* instances of the MD, which then fight endlessly until you restart.
As I'm going through the AVWizard, something interrupts the setup, immediately after I select my room and the Wizards starts from the beginning.
I ran sabnzbd and sickbeard, 2 python scripts. I can home yesterday to a 2G swap in use.
What I see now:
Cpu(s): 0.6%us, 1.6%sy, 0.0%ni, 96.9%id, 0.0%wa, 0.3%hi, 0.5%si, 0.0%st

That's too bad, since 32G is holds us below 4G memory. I have tried adding a couple features to linuxmce but I run out of memory. I was swapping 2G at one point when running some python code.
