gentoox asks for 4.5 gigs on e: I have deleted everything i have possibly can and yet theres still not enough room. I thought gentoox could work without a harddrive upgrade? am I missing something here?

Ive had to reformat my drive to get enough space on E, but than again it worked for me.

does the installer reformat on its own, what is the procedure to format?

I used GT-Jays boot disk, or an Avalaunch boot disk. Like the one used to do a modded install after a chip has been installed. The X3 chip also has the ability to format the drive. I think your problem was that when your xbox was first modded, you may have used the EvoX disk to format. It needed less space on the E drive.

Im not using a modchip, I'm not using Evox either. I prefer UnleashX. Ill try those boot disks thanks

P.S. having a hard time finding avalauch. Even with bittorrent. Is there some site where I can find it (what is xbins?)

Formatting E is often your best choice, as the space available is usually misrepresented.
