[kwlug-disc] Moonlight and CTV Olympic website

Hi peeps, 

I failed to convert somebody to Linux today. The problem was that she
wants to stream video from http://cbc.ca and (more importantly)
http://ctvolympics.ca . The CTV site (naturally) uses Silverlight. I
installed the Moonlight plugin (novell moonlight 2.0) as prompted, but
I still get no video love. 

I looked briefly on the internet for a quick fix. I did not find one,
so instead I will ask you to surf the internet for me. Have you had
any success in getting this streaming to work in Ubuntu under Firefox? 
If so, what magic is required to get things working? 

I don't remember the version of Ubuntu offhand. Information about
getting it running under any version would be helpful. 

Aaargh. Multimedia sucks. 80 characters by 24 lines should be enough
for anybody.
