thought I'd pass along a linux noobie tip for xbox installers:
I screwed up one of my boot scripts (by miscommenting out 'startx' I think it was) and couldn't get my native install on my ext3 xbox F: drive to boot. No sshd, no ftp, no keyboard(!).
After about an hour of not knowing what to do (total linux noob) looking around this great board I pieced together the following about 5 mins before giving up and reforrmatting:
I started the liveCD ver, and then:
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /mnt/f
I now could access my native install, and correct the dumbass mistake I made
(probably elementary to most, but I wanted to pass it along)
Now to slim down my install as much as possible for the ultimate Xbox CommServer (64MB/30MB free after boot so far, how small can my boot resonably be, anyone?), already figured out runlevel 2, and no extra bash logins, hmmm, runlevel 1...MUHAHAHAA!
