    You have to mod the XBox and put Linux on it, then you can connect to the Xbox via FTP.

    ok, so let me get this straight... is it not possible to connect a crossover cable between the mac and the modxbox to use the xbox hard drive?

    I didn't say that, but you have to have the Xbox mod where you install Linux, unless I'm mistaken.
