technically you should use a straight cable to connect to your router if it has a switch (more than one LAN port) and a x-over if it has no switch, however most routers these days support auto mdx so you can use any cable. The easiest way to check is to plug in your xbox and look for a link light on...

All USB tv cards are h/w mpeg2 encoders, there's no way you could get the video down the cable any other way, there just isn't the bandwidth

to get the second drive to work in linux you will need to
1. partition the drive with fdisk
2. create a filesystem on the drive (I recommend reiser but you can also use ext3, XFS or JFS
3. add an entry to fstab to make the drive mount on boot.

If you get stuck with any of these steps post back
