You don't /need/ cromwell, and in fact if you get a new xbox, chances
are good that cromwell won't work for you.
I'll tell you about my setup, so you know what's possible.
I got my box hard-modded by a local guy with a so-called "cheap-mod"
(DuoX2) dunno why it's called a cheapmod, since it seems to do
everything I'd want...
There are two buttons on a stock Xbox - power and eject. The way the
installer hooked it up (and maybe this is default, I dunno) pushing the
eject button to power up starts the XBox with the modchip disabled.
Powering on with the power button starts the box with the
modchip/launches a non-ms dashboard.
From there, I booted up a Xebian cd, and followed the install at
http://bit.blkbk.com/ - pretty simple. The XBox remote dongle worked
"out of the box" and everything is pretty smooth - aside from the
occasional crash :(
Anyway, for more details, you can read the full saga at:
