I've just mount a rack on my xbox and i want to keep the original hdd because it's too small and there's no good reason to not use my nice 60gig one.
So i would like to know if i could install gentoox on it with nothing else, i've just read faq but it's always about e: drive, evox ...
Cant i install this distro like the pc-gentoo ? Won't we just need a default xbe ?

i think he's saying that it isn't exactly a computer so you can't install it like on a pc

Info page is fine.. the server is under extreme load so it was probably die'ing after a 30second timeout :P
