I have only tried EvolutionX and I am happy with it

For installing EvolutionX, all you have to do is to locate on internet the file: SlaYer's EvoX Auto-Installer v2.5FINAL.iso (215Mb) and burn it on a DVD-RW or CD-RW.

Boot your XBOX with this CD inside, and follow the onscreen menu. In 2 minutes, You can have EvolutionX, Linux, XBMP installed. You can even prepare a new and bigger harddisk with no efforts.

You have now:
C:As before, partition where the XBOX operating system is
D:DVD drive
E:Game save, original dashboard music and all third party applications: dvd reader, ftp, many players, some emulators (5Gb)
F:If you have a disk bigger than 4Gb you will have some space to store Linux for example
G:Available if you have a disk bigger than 120Gb
X:Internal cache (768Mb)
Y:Internal cache (768Mb)
Z:Internal cache (768Mb)
