    It is just like saying what distro should i use for My home PC:

    There are 3 main XBOX linuxes:
    XEBIAN- Debain Sarge
    xDSL- DSL for linux ( lightning fast and only 50mb )
    GentooX ( A version of Gentoo by SHaLLaX [ I think that is how you spell it])

    It all depends what you want,

    Good Luck

    PS: Is your XBOX chipped?

    I don't really have a Xbox, but my experience with Debian says "stick with Xebian"...

    that depends on if you want your xbox to still play xbox stuff, if not then its exactly like installing on a PC.

    I would say gentoox or xDSL are the best IMO

    Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.

    Installing it on your xbox is a little different than on a PC. Well, as far as I understand there are two ways. One way will prevent you from playing xbox games and one will not. The one that allows you to continue to play xbox games involve saving a small version of linux as a xbox game. Then you open it using MechAssault. Then you can install a full distro from a CD.

    I am probably leaving something out, I read about it a long time ago and thought it was neat... but alas, I haven't an xbox of my own.
