Great, thanks for your work. 

I got my XBOX with an Aladdin modchip. Today I downloaded the LiveCD
and tried to boot from it, but failed. (I don't have the Cromwell BIOS
installed on my XBOX ). Then I booted XBOX with GentooX install CD (Home edition),
and replaced GentooX CD with FreeBSD XBOX live CD after it booted into 
GentooX Loader, selected CD option, then the XBOX was try to boot from it, 
I can see there's four choices (FreeBSD 5.4 ... CD/HDD, 
FreeBSD 6.0-BETA1 ... CD/HDD). I tried all of them, it just stopped there, 
it didn't show any FreeBSD boot messages.

Thank you for portting FreeBSD to XBOX. XD
