Can you set up a network that includes the xbox? I have 2 computers, on running Red Hat 7.2 that is a webserver, and one that runs win xp pro and linux red hat 7.2, its a dual boot machine. Can i set up a network with these and the xbox? i have no idea how to do a linux network either, can anyone help me out? and will file transfers be faster if the xbox is on a network? I only have the orgional HHD and i dont plan on getting another one, can i set up linux and still have room for save games and maybe a xbox game or two?? thx for reading this and answer any questions you can plz.

Yes you can.

Setting up Linux networking is a different subject matter altogether.

You are best off going to the Linux Forums.

Also Mandrake has an idiot proof Networking configuration system. It looks a lot like Windows, only it does even more of the work for you.

Check it out! It's free for the download.

well? will i get fast file transfers? thats the main reason i want to do this, so i can backup games faster. can i still backup games??? i want to do something like this; boot linux, put in a xbox game, copy the files to the HHD, transfer the game files via LAN to my other computer with a DVD burner, and then burn the game using xISO and all that stuff. Will this work? or something simmilar to this seceniro? huh.gif

well i only get 30 kbs file transfer speed off the xbox, thats cause my cable instenet connection is limited to that speed, but if i have all the computers, the xbox, and the cable modem connected to a hub, i should get much faster file transfers? right?

I have seen files fly at 70 Mbits using Evox and FlashFXP (or some FTP program). Just using a ($20) 100Mbit Switch between the xbox and PC.
