what a great idea gary!  it just so happens that the new box Im building
for my youngest boy for christmas will leave a perfectly capable msi
mobo, sempron powered box that he plans on helping me wipe clean and
install mythbuntu on for one of his buddies.   you wouldnt believe his
friends stand in amazement when I show off our ubuntu/mythtv box we have
in the living room pumping all its power to a 42" lcd.  Apparently we're
the "cool" house on the block.
