I'm considering attempting to set up an Intel Mac Mini as a
MythTV frontend.  Right now I'm thinking I'll leave the
internal drive alone and boot from net or from a USB flash
drive.  That way I can spin down the internal HD and save on
power and noise (and the standard OS-X install is still there,
so it can be trivially switched back to normal desktop use).

I've been googling for info on running Linux on a Mac Mini, and
there was fairly active discussion 3-4 years ago, but very
little recent info.  That leads me to either of two

 1) It can't be done and everybody gave up.

 2) It's so trivial that people no longer need to ask about it.

So, how hard would it be to do a USB or network-based Gentoo
install for a recent Intel Mac Mini?
