Ok, so is there any way to find out your XBOX username and password, or am I screwed? And if I am screwed, apart from firebombing the stupid shop that sold me the thing, is there any way to either reset the password, or just overwrite the BIOS or something?

The Evox red triangle thing as you boot is the bios.
but yeah, I would burn Evox to a disk (renaming the xbe to defaul.xbe) and boot from that.
FTP over to it, and stick a real dash like avalaunch on the C partition

Ok, couple of small things, if I have a boot disc with some version of EVOX on it, does it need to be the same version that's running as my BIOS or can it be any old one? I don't actually know what version it is, just got the thing pre-modded and stupid bloke didn't know which chip it is even.
By the way I'm guessing the .XBE is a config file, can I just open that with a text editor? (don't worry I know a bit of scripting won't touch anything that I can't figure out, lol). My guess would be it's a config and the xbox automatically loads Default.xbe over any other files in much the same way as an Autoexec.cfg overwrites game settings on stuff like doom 3 and the ilk. That right or am I in fact a moron?
Ooh yeah one last thing - does this boot disc overwrite the original password, so when I take it out the password settings in the Default.xbe are transferred permanently to my xbox? or do I now have to boot with a CD every time I want to ftp?
Sorry bout all the manic questions, cheers for the help though, hope you guys can shed some light!
