A crossover cable is normally needed when you are connecting directly to another machine, instead of a hub or router (or other network equipment). Often the port have LEDs which give a status of the connection, if it does not show that it is connected, then you need to use a crossover (or a router).
You can get routers pretty cheap, so you might want to consider that. If you get one with a builtin firewall, it will also help to protect your machine. If you get a crossover cable make sure that it is marked as such so you don't get it confused with other cables.

So, since you don't want to go the easy router of a router, you will need to manually configure the IP address for the xbox, which I assume there is a way to do that, but I don't know the unit. You will also need to assign an IP address for the interface that is used to talk to the xbox. You can use something like 192.168.123.X with a netmask of 255.255.255.0.
