You cannot add in your own dvd drives. There are a few with hacked firmware though, but they are costly and typically not needed.

You can upgrade the harddrive after you ship the system.

Yes, xbins FTP. Request a pass from their IRC

You should know that you void your warranty, and make sure you get correct bios for your xbox version.

I think those cables are for servers and external drive shuttles....

You can hook up multiple HDD's, but only one can be powered at a time. Unless you really need multiple drives, I wouldn't recommend it.

As for your bios question, the newest X2 bios would be fine.
x2 bios v.5035 = v1.0 to v1.5 xboxs
x2 bios v.5035 v16 plus = v1.6 to v1.6b xboxs

i used some crimpers to add on more power hook ups, i took the power hook ups off an old comp power supply, would it then be possible to power more than one hard drive, and what is an external drive shuttle? the site said the cable was made for xbox here is the site link so you can see the cablehttp://secure.llamma.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=282

I don't know if you already found your answer, but the answer is no. The xbox will only see one drive. I don't even know how it will act if there were multiple drivers hooked up (maybe give an HDD error). The xbox is only set to read from a single drive. If you house one externally, you will need a switch to cut power from one or the other.

Besides that, I am not sure if the xbox even has enough juice to power multiple drives at the same time.
