There's a lot of ways to mod you xbox either with a chip, TSOP flash or softmod.

I spent a good 2 weeks reading before I started playing.
I got someone else to do the mod chip for me ( I'm not that good with a soildering iron/pen) and I just stated to mess around with the software. First thing to do is make a backup, a complete copy of the hard drive and bios so if you do screw up, which i have done plenty of times you can get you box up and running again. A copy of Slayers Auto-Installer dosn't go astray ether (also speaking for experience)

And then if you get stuck or run into something and need to know the answer, go to the right forum and just ask.... most people here will help you out.

I recommend the Xenium Ice chip. It is very newb friendly.
For a bios I am using the Xecutor 4981.06 I guess there are newers versions of the Xecutor bios but I havent updated. The Xecutor bios is what was recommended to me when I was a newb by several experianced modders.
For dashboards i've tried they all. They all do the same thing but they each do it in there own different way. I like the way avalaunch works.
Xbox Media Center and DVD2XBOX are must have apps.
Unless you have a dvd burner you will need a bigger harddrive. The 8/10gb hd that is in there now will only fit one or two games depending on the game size.
Hope this helps. PM me or msg me on AIM if you need anymore help.

Try going to www.macsat.com/xbins/
It is the webbrowser version of xbins irc channel.
I am not sure what ports it uses but give it a try.
You will also need an ftp client (port 22)
I really doubt they have port 22 closed.
