    Thinking of Modding Xbox. Don't know about Linux

    I read an article in Popular Science about modding an x-box so I could run linux on it. And with longhorn comming out in the future, I was thinking of learning about it anyway.

    Unfortuantely, sites like linux.org aren't helping me understand. I need screenshots! I want stupid explanations. I know a lot about comps, and from what I've heard, linux has more functionality. But a long journey Begins with a small step. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advacne!

    It depends on the version of the x-box also. From what I've heard the newer versions of the x-box do not allow you to install linux (ie they won't run at all if you do).

    How I learned linux: Got a cheapy second computer and installed linux and dove in

    Since I really haven't gotten an answer, but instead replies saying its not possible, I'll clear it up to you. I understand trying to warn me not to, so I'll post the link to the article:

    http://www.popsci.com/popsci/compute...611099,00.html

    Now that it's been okay'ed, can someone PLEASE help me? I'm sorry if I sound like an ass, I don't mean to. Actually, the point of posting the link is so you can see where I'm comming from. So sorry, and thanks, in advance
