1 - Hook up crosslink cable between your pc and your xbox
2 - read the faq on how to connect your pc to your xbox with an ftp program (not that difficult)
3 - read the xbins faq on how to get on xbins.
(get mirc program and visit xbins chat, talk to bot and get info to connect, then with ftp program connect to xbins server and get files)
4 - unzip emulator into a dir
5 - connect to your xbox via ftp program
6 - copy neogenesis directory into your emulators dir (so that its F:\emulators\neogenesis\default.xbe ) (or wherever your emulators dir is)
7 - copy roms in f:\emulators\neogenesis\roms\
(may be zipped or unzipped but not rarred or 7zipped or any other form of compression)
8 - reboot xbox and start neogenesis from your emulators section of your dashboard.
9 - do it more often and learn how the xbox thing works
10 - become amazing at it and replace your crummy outdated dashboard with the latest amazing version of XBMC with the 360 skin and rejoice
11 - Admit that you're really Bill Gates and write me a fat check so i can retire.
maybe.. train some kids to take over my task as amazing answering person..
a whole.. squad of VampX's so to say..

First off, it is possible to get all those emulators on the box, except PS2. You can, on the other hand, get PSX.
You can put them on a cd or put them on the hdd. I keep everything on the hdd so it is easier and I don't have to mess with cd's. Just file transfer your stuff over to the xbox or burn it onto a cd.
You need to get the emulators, do some reserch here to learn about different ones. You are on your own getting the emulators and the roms. (can't discuss where to get them here) (Google is your best friend) Look up Surreal 64 for (N64), and ZSNEXBOX (SNES).
Basically, If you put them in the right directory on your hdd, with the roms in the right folder for each. Each emulator will appear in the list on your dashboard, in the section labeled "Emulators".
How big is your hdd? Have you worked with emulators before? Research this stuff and you'll be able to figure it out. Don't sweat it man, these guy will help you. You have been missing the best part of xbox modding!
PS. I wrote this before I saw Vamp's comment. Yeah what he said . You make me laugh VampX

and honestly i dont even know what size the hard drive is. maybe 300gb or more? I have like 10-15 full xbox games on it and i think i have a good bit of memory left. its an xecuter mod chip. avalaunch dash. and in the bottom right corner it says "Alpha v0.49.1" my guess its a old "crummy" version as vampx said. since the console is a couple years old already. lol.

Unzip the emulator, within the folder, there will be multiple folders. One of them will be named "roms", put your roms in there, (zipped or unzipped).
If you want, put the folder now on a cd and burn it.
go in to your xbox file explorer and copy the emu folder to a directory of your choosing. (probably: e:\emulators\ or f:\emulators\.
Once it is copied, either restart your system or go into the folder and launch the "default.xbe"
Your emu will load up and should now show up on the dashboard.
If you have a hdd that big, than you should have no problem with it. You might run into your xbox not reading a cd -r, depending on which version you have, but dvd-r's should always work fine.

i unzipped it and it went into the folder, i went into the roms folder and there's nothing there, just a file called "placeholder"

The roms folder is empty, because you don't have any roms yet. You must get those manually,
After you get the roms you want, put them in that folder ("roms") and burn the whole thing
("ZsnexBox_2.99b1") to your disk.
Then, simply copy the whole folder, ("ZsnexBox_2.99b1") to your "e:\emulators" directory.
EDIT: no, that is the emu by its self. you're good.
EDIT 2: -33.8 mb is fine.

okay. so the size of that folder is fine at 33.8? i thought it should be bigger than that.
I already find 33megs to be quite large for an Emulator, most are like 5 megs.

The emulator should show up on your dashboard under "emulators" now. (always restart the box). If not, try the same thing, but this time in drive f.
You can get more roms by grabing some more and putting them on a disk again. Then just copy those roms into the "roms" folder located in the emulator folder, where ever you put it on your box. (but like I said, put the zsnexbox folder in your new "emulators" folder first.
