You forgot the original mandrake, although your are actually better off using mandriva since mandrake only boots on 1.0 xboxs.

Also you forgot minisxb and sxbonastick smile.gif

This is great stuff!! I was wondering which Linux distro would be good for me. I am running a softmoded box using Ndure 3.0 & XBMC as my dash. I would like to keep XBMC as my default dash and run the linux distro as an app. I thought Id seen a distro of that awhile back but I cant remember which one.

Thanks for all your help.
