if you restore the original image to a USB drive, you can then access the partition with an ext2 app if you're in Windows, or just mount it as another drive if you're running linux, and edit the /etc/network/interfaces file.
I tried it with a read only ext2 app for windows which worked fine for viewing/saving the file, but the only read/write app I can find is http://www.fs-driver.org/index.html which doesn't install on Windows 7... :/

Well thats alot of messing about/learning for the day.
With the tips about the ext2 read/write and the network/services changes I finally got it to work.
I used this (http://www.thewireframecommunity.com/node/174)for mac and changed the file as suggested in this thread. It came up with an error on first boot and said it would boot again. Second time around it spent AGES going through downloads and text and who knows what else and finally came up with XBMC linux .. yay.
Havent tried it yet but ill take it on faith that its awesome.
Next step will be the HDD install.... tomorrow.
Hopefully Sam will be back to help for that.

Glad to hear you got it working
Now, if only I was able to get mine working ...

Edit: All fixed now thanks Sam. Works beautifully. Tomorrow I shall probably try the install to HDD.

Don't upload a usbit backup. Ever. There is a specific image preparation process.
As for no HDMI sound, you did make adjustments according to the wikis post install steps?
Will put up a fixed image soon
