How old? As long as it's IDE/EIDE interfaced, you shouldn't have any problems with it...

Yes, you sure can, just be sure to get a slayers boot disk or some other boot disk that can setup the partitions and format it. You don't have to reformat it on your computer. The Xbox uses a different file system than your pc does.

Yeah, I have an extra 80gb laying around but its 5400 rpm, will this be fast enough? Whats the speed of the drive that the xbox comes with?
