Well, I just got my 250GB hdds in my two modded boxes today, and the AID 3.0 installation of Xdsl is running moderately well on both. (One box has horrible video display, but I think I know how to fix this)
But, this installation seems to be the frugal method. What I want is a native install.
Problem. I am using smartxx v2 chips in both boxes, and the aid 3.0 installer. My chip has an onboard linux booter, which booted my current xdsl installation. However, neither the chip, nor the unleashx formatter seem to want to partition me a G drive. But, I want to run linux on there anyway... so:
How do I get the drive partitioned correctly, and set up for an xdsl installation?
How should I boot linux? Continue to use the smartxx v2's loader, or flash a bios?
