No soldering necessary.  I plan on installing linux on mine once I get
my network settled in the living room.  I too plan on using it as a
MythTv front end unit.  First thing's first though.  Gotta wedge linux
onto it, and I gotta get the xbox media pack.  

Basically, the only reason you'd solder anything is to mod the box to
accept a bios that will allow you to play copied games.  You can run
linux on an xbox, and still play legal games on it without soldering or
chipping it.  You just need a working linux box, a portable usb drive
(one of those keychain drives would work), a special usb controller
adapter, the game "MechAssault"  and spare time.
