Im looking to put xebian or gentoox on my xbox. the thing im worried about is if the unix systems are either gonna delete or overwrite my games and apps and other files. Also, are they easy do remove if i need to. Do i just delete them?

Thanks alot

It will not hurt your apps or nothing as I just installed Gentoox on my xbox the other day. As for removing it I think you have to format that part of the hard drive (like E:) to remove it correctly. I could be wrong though. It does take up some HD space as my E: was about 3.9 gigs before linux and is now about 520 MB so it used around 3.4 gigs for the install.

I do recommend installing linux as it is nice to have linux on the box. If you get Gentoox when you run magic it will take about 4-6 hours to update everything so be prepared for a long wait. wink.gif
