Yes, no Problem.

Still the best recommendation is to use a dedicated machine for vdr and
to build/compile the whole stuff on a second machine. Then you don't
need all the overhead.
My vdr-system has the whole vdr/glibc/bin/modules-things in a initrd ram
disc which is loaded by the bios together with the kernel.
Boot time (after bios-checks) is < 10 seconds to see a picture and about
20 seconds until the system is ready to replay/record on a Duron 1300 board.
