If i were to make xbox games would i connect the XBox to the computer with a ethernet cable or could i just burn it onto a CD and put it in the XBOX. I heard XBox uses something extremly like Direct X is that true? So i could just develop on my pc and port it easily to the XBOX

An unmodified XBox will not run any burned CDs. For serious development you would need an official development kit from Microsoft (~$15,000). You can, however, use the DirectX 8.1 SDK and develop on a normal PC. Use DirectInput, DirectSound and Direct3D and you're set.
If your dev PC has an Intel PIII/Celeron around 800MHz and a GeForce 3 Ti card, you're pretty close to an actual XBox (hardware-wise).
You can also toy around with OpenXDK, an open-source XBox devkit.
