If you know your xbox's IP address you should be able to ssh in and edit files (try user root / password xbox) with nano or something.

I don't actually have an active gentooX install to try this on, so i don't know if the config files are in exactly the same place, but you can get the gdm login manager to auto login as a user by editing the config files in /etc/X11/gdm/. You will need to consult the gdm documentation on how to do this.

This is purely off the top of my head from what i did when i had my gentoo pc downstairs next to the TV a while ago so i've forgot the specifics, good luck! I seem to remember reading in the FAQ somewhere that Xscreensaver is disabled for a similar reason (that it asks you for your password)...
