Linux Media Center

Today I got my LinuxMCE (Linux Media Center) working correctly. It is quite nice, I just installed the live CD of Ubuntu Linux and from there the LinuxMCE and was guided through the whole process by wizards (yes I know, sounds more like Windows approach).
It automatically recognized my Nvidia FX5200 video card and even the video out worked out of the box. So now I got all my music and videos on my linux machine, which is just an old PC with a big hard disk, sitting under my TV.
The goal is still to have a full blown automation landscape, with stuff like a home server etc, but for now this is quite ok
