Hi its late now but I tried to install LinuxMCE on my system and I got it working with no issues. I have a Biostar U8668D Socket 478 Motherboard ($47.99), P4 2.66 Ghz 512 Cache 533 FSB SocN 478 processor ($169.99), 1 Gig memory chip(1), a I/O Magic 4x DVD+/-RW Burner ($109.99), 30 Gig Seagate IDE hard drive ($59.97), PNY GeForce 6200 256MB AGP w/DVI/TV-OUT video card ($69.99), APEX 5 bay MICRO ATX case with 300W PS ($49.00). I have had the box since 2004 when I built it. In November of 2006 I added the video card. The box had been running various Linux OS'es including RH9, Mandrake, etc. I finally installed Xandros 2.0 Open Circulation edition of Linux sometime in 2005 (I think, don't remember exactly) and it has never crashed. About two weeks ago I decided to give LinuxMCE a try after reading about it on ExtremeTech. I downloaded a DVD iso and gave it a try. So far it has been working as advertised. Mind you I do not have allt he goodies attached to it yet but I have been putting my DVD collection on the hard drives and all seems well. I get the images from flikr etc. I do not have a firewire remote and tried to use my Cingular 3125 (HTC Startek) Windows smartphone as an Orbiter with no success as the phone freezes up when I select the Pluto Icon. So basically I use my Logitech wireless keyboard & mouse unit to control MCE. So far I love it. PS: If someone could point me in the right direction to help me use my cellphone mentioned above with MCE it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks to all ! and Good Luck with your installation !
