KnoppMyth or MythDora?

My MythTV Journey, Part 5

In my research I discovered that there are basically three ways to install MythTV:
  • Install it yourself into your already working Linux distro
  • Use the KnoppMyth Live CD
  • Use the MythDora Live DVD
The last two options sound easier. (I'm not afraid of installing Linux; it's just that these Live CDs will install everything you need and help you get set up.)

MythDora apparently installs a complete installation of Fedora Core plus MythTV. KnoppMyth, however, seems to install a more minimal system focused on running MythTV. This was more what I was looking for, so I chose KnoppMyth.
