If you install linux to your box you should be able to use a dial-up usb modem to connect to the internet... Assuming your usb dial-up modem is supported by your linux distribution.

This would be called the "cheaper way".

And probably best bet. Debian I believe only has what is necessary, and remember, these are far from perfect yet.

If you have linux on PC you can use Routed or something and have the PC as the gateway to your Xbox Linux

Or windows, doesn't matter.

Could get a net card for your computer, a crossover cable, and hook up ICS like that.

Not sure if that would work or not, never tried it.
