Alright im gonna list some questions:

1. How do I find out what type of Xbox I have?

2. What things are needed to modify an xbox fully?

3. What is the best dashboard, program, and other things for what I want the xbox to do:

Burn games on XBox
Emulator with alot of old school games

And i need it to be compatible with alot of versions etc.

4. what is a HDD? Is ita hard drive because usually it would be spelled HD.

Thanks

Hey,

As its your first post, welcome to the site man.
In response to your questions:

1. Xbox v1.0-v1.5 have MFG Date (manufacturer date) up to may 2004. Consoles with a later MFG Date are 1.6 version or higher. To be more certain you can check your video chip brand. Open your console and check your board, the video chip is located right behind the RGB/AV cable input. If you have Xcalibur written on it you have a version 1.6!

You can also find out which version you have by checking the serial number on your xbox console, examples :

Serial XXXXXXX 30205 = v1.2
Serial XXXXXXX 31205 = v1.3

00-22 = v1.0
23-25 = v1.1
25-30 = v1.2
30-31 = v1.3
33-xx = v1.4

For a detailed look at versions, try here:
http://www.xbox-linux.org/wiki/Xbox_Versions_HOWTO

2. This depends on whether you're planning on doing a hardmod (which will require a chip) or a softmod (which requires a copy of one of the following: Splinter Cell, Mechassault, 007 Agent Under Fire and a memory card with game save exploits). An action replay may be required if you have no way of getting the gamesaves onto the memory card.
In either case, you're going to want a copy of Auto Installer Deluxe (hard and soft mod) or Auto Installer Deluxe + SID (softmod only).

For further details on your chosen method, just ask.

3. Different people will give you different answers. The common ones you'll here about are XBMC and UnleashX. I myself use EvoX and swear by it. In the end, it comes down to personal preference. Burning games and running emulators have nothing to do with the dashboard, as these are done by seperate applications.

4. HDD is the hard drive actually, and stands for Hard Disk Drive, as it always has. HD stands for High Definition.

Hope that helps. Need anything else, just yell.

FC

I would reccomend unleashed for starters because yeah it is really straight forward and in a nice format that anyone can catch on too, especially when you switch it to a skin. (Green is the best one on their^_^)

If you want a top of the line chip then get the X3 CE. If you want a good middle of the road chip then get a X2.6 CE.
