Installing GentooX Home 6.2 to G Drive

I want to install GentooX Home 6.2 on my Xbox using an FTP installation. The only snag I have is that I want to install it onto my G Drive if possible. How do I go about doing this?

If I can't do this, installing it to the F Drive is still an option, but this would mean manually mounting the G Drive. How would I go about doing this?

In both cases, I already have a lot of files on both drives that I cannot afford to lose. Will there be any side-effects when installing GentooX to either drive, or when I use them as mount points?

Also, if I install GentooX to the G Drive, will Magic be in any way affected?

I know that I can access my Xbox network shares from Windows via Samba, but is it possible to do the reverse: access Windows network shares from GentooX via Samba?

If it helps, I am running a v1.4 Xbox with UnleashX as my main dash, but I also use XBMC quite a lot. I am unsure what BIOS I have. If I need to flash it, that is an option also.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Your first post was oct-01. So what have you done till now.

I havent tried to install on G drive, but just follow the Ftp install tutorial document from the Gentoox Website. (tutorial section on the left )

Let us know which part you have questions and we would be happy to help

I haven't done anything because there aren't any guides for installing to the G Drive.
I tried searching the forums but couldn't find anything i could really use.
I don't want to try anything myself because I really don't want to risk screwing up anything on my Xbox. I'd rather have all the info before i delve in.

Nope, sorry. We're just a bunch of people that hijacked this forum and use it to talk about rubber chickens and vasectomies and other fun stuff =)

Like I said, all you had do was go to the tutorial section on gentoox site.

That's all well and fine, but I'm fairly sure that I've read somewhere that installing it to the G Drive requires some special messing around.
