That one has come up a lot in my research.  I'm definitely going to give it
a try.

Darn.  I was planning on editing and watching it on my faster box,
and at worst, using X remotely to start/stop an app (better would be
able to run something from a command line to capture).  My faster box gets
used for a lot of compilation, so I was hoping to designate the slower
machine as sort of a ripping station, and use the bigger one for editing.

Well, that and the capture care is already in that machine and I was hoping
to not have to move it.  :->

Thanks to all for the various feed backs.
