MythTV on a nslu2... looking for best approach to get a 2.6.16 kernel on the NSLU2

Hello debian-arm peeps,

I'm wondering if anyone has some scripts that can be used to take the unstable 2.6.16 kernel package (http://packages.debian.org/unstable/base/linux-image-2.6.16-2-nslu2) and roll it together with the proprietary Intel ipx400 nic driver to make a bootable nslu2 image... or if I should instead abandon debian-arm and start over targeting opendebianslug.

I'm working on a proof of concept to see if an NSLU2 can be used to capture ATSC transport streams to record HDTV.

Thus far, I've successfully ported MythTV 0.19-5 from the Ubuntu archive (at http://deb.thehunter.ws/dists/breezy/mythtv-stable/) to debian arm unstable running on an NSLU2...

The debian arm packages are available at:

The requirement for 2.6.16 comes from the fact that my usb tuner (http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/FusionHDTV5USBGold) requires cxusb which was introduced and bug-fixed throughout the 2.6.16.  I can build this module on the slug itself from the kernel source packages, but unless I can get the newer kernel onto the slugs firmware it's not going to help.
