There are other ways which don't require a chip but a chip is
definitely the best way to go. I have a Xecuter 3 in my XBox and it's
the business. The XBox harddrive only has about 4.7 GB spare space and
less if you have tons of save games and music on it so a bigger hard
drive might be required depending in your needs.

Not sure this is true anymore with the bootable dvd's and all that and
it's not true if you install a chip. The X3 runs a httpd and ftpd for
uploading bios's so if the install gets botched you can just start
over no probs. Some other chips include samba servers too !
The XBox also has the builtin network card which the PS2 doesn't have.
If your a bit iffy about installing a chip I've done mine and one of
my friends no problem. Both worked first time so I can do it if your
interested for a small fee or something.
You should check out www.xbox-scene.com.
Oh yeah, I think it's Black-Rhino Linux for PS2 and I'd prob go with
GentooX for XBox although I'm not sure I've seen many others.
