14 Sounds good, but it also sounds like the problem I ran into when I
15 used ext3 for my boot partition and found that BIOS couldn't read it.
16 Remember, BIOS has to have hardware support for whatever partition
17 grub and the kernel reside on. After the kernel is in memory you can
18 do much more but that first step is a requirement.
20 Report back when you get it running. I have a couple of old XBoxes
21 here that would be nice to make some use of.
23 FYI - when I did this project it was to use the XBox as a MythTV frontend.
25 Cheers,
