Okay, for a start, what version of the XBOX is it?  Is it an original 
XBOX or an XBOX 360?

Not sure about the XBOX360 as I haven't got one, but if you have an 
original XBOX then you'll need either a mod chip installed or a 
soft-mod.  On the original XBOX, once it's modified to run other 
software you can install XBOX Media Centre and then get it to connect to 
SAMBA shares or FTP shares on your Linux box.

I'm not sure if I should go into how to mod an XBOX on this list as 1) 
it's off topic and 2) Microsoft might not approve. There are fairly good 
guides on the internet.  Just do a Google search for XBOX Scene which is 
a site dedicated to all things XBOX and have tutorials on how to do things.
