Im trying to stream movies and music to my Xbox (original). So far no luck, but I know you need to set up Samba to do so so go here:

You can do it if you install ushare
leo5111 was successful with xbox

yum install ushare

then read through and follow the instruction here for ushare:
and you may also want to have a read through the man page for ushare here : http://linux.die.net/man/1/ushare

This sounds pretty cool since I cant get smb working but how should this be configured?

Do I need to configure an interface to use? Becasue it doesnt seem to detect the NIC going to my xbox.

and on the xbox which option do I use to stream? workgroup? smb?

I don't have an xbox, so I cannot say one way or another regarding anything from that end.
Do you have a router, which your FC box and the xbox are both connected ?

I'd also like to figure this out, but I need my 360 repaired and MS isn't being too helpful.

I believe you can use Windows Media Player, so maybe you could try running that through emulation or through Wine, using samba to share? I'm not sure if the 360 is "tricked" by Samba.

Once I get a new laptop, I'm probably going to use my current laptop as a Windows File and print server. So, I'll share my music from my Linux box through samba then share it from my Windows file/print server, and from there to my Xbox 360.

Samba Server --> Windows server --> Xbox 360

Think it'll work? ;)

I've been using Twonkyvision for quite some time and it's been great. It costs some $ , but I was never able to get ushare (there was another one too...) working 100%

Also, convert all my stuff to xvid + 5.1 ac3 so I can get surround sound. Unfortunately h.264 doesn't offer surround... only stereo :(
