I get things working slowly, so I started rebuilding my old Windoze Media Center with Ubuntu 10.04 before adding anything extra. I have now made the bold leap and installed MythTV. I am happy to say I have gotten it up and running. Next I installed the Mythbuntu Control Centre application. I came across System Roles and the Backend Role is checked Secondary Backend. I am using MythTV on this one box. I would like to install a Frontend on another system in the future and use the rebuilt as the server. Which Backend should I be using on the main box? If I switch from Secondary to Primary, is this going to mess up my settings?

Your main backend should be a Primary backend. Though if you already have it running as a secondary backend, I wouldn't change that.
